Abstract

Conventional wire-based infrastructure health monitoring systems have high installation costs and are vulnerable to adverse environments. These weak points hinder their wider applications in practice. A Remote Intelligent Monitoring System (RIMS) is developed in this study by employing the new developing technology in MEMS and wireless communication. Hardware and software as well are described in this paper. To verify its feasibility and effectiveness, a sensor unit is installed on a streetlight pole in a real bridge to measure the vibrations due to ambient excitation. The results show that the RIMS can provide an economical on-line health monitoring platform for engineers and administrators. The system will be further developed and the key issues are addressed.
