Periodic Reporting for period 1 - SmartPatch (Use of a cost effective smart skin sensor system for remote Structural Health Monitoring and post event structural damage assessment in Soft Urban Targets and Critical Infrastructures Protection)
Reporting period: 2014-07-01 to 2014-12-31
But to date efficient Structural Health Monitoring Systems are most often very cost intensive custom installation and therefore reserved to highly selected targets.
Our objective is to make Structural Health Monitoring more affordable and so to increase the number of monitored infrastructures in an exponential way. Therefore we are to finalize the development of our Smart Skin Sensor System: a low cost structural integrity surveillance solution, which is easy to implement at any life stage of a construction and surveys four main parameters (strain, temperature, tilt and seismic activity) but is also open to external sensors integration.
