Abstract

Wireless sensor networks bring new challenges to Bridge monitoring. To monitor a bridge, behavior, including vibration and displacement, must be measured to analyze the health of the structure based on measured and collected data. The collected data can be used to compute modal properties of the bridge. A bridge is moved by external forces, including wind, seismic activity, and traffic. So it is very hard reliance of safety through a preexistence method which uses Data Logger. Dynamic behavior of a bridge is difficult to measure because of costs and installation methods. In this paper, a new method, using a U-Smart Sensor and Sensor Networking to measure the dynamic behavior of the bridge, is suggested. A new wireless MEMS accelerometer sensor (U-Smart Sensor) board is designed to meet the specific hardware and software requirements of structural engineering applications.
