Array Stress/Strain Remote Sensor
A novel 2-D array stress/strain remote sensor has been developed for
real-time characterization of different structural behaviors. This method
is based upon the use of embedded fiber optic sensors for stress &
strain and static & dynamic measurements. These sensors can be integrated
into any structure. This remote sensor can be used in many different
applications; from fabrics and textiles, to bridges and roadways, to
automobiles and airplanes.
Remote sensing technology is used to transmit information from the structure
to the ground station using an RF wireless transmitter and receiver
that was developed for remote sensing and real-time measurements.
