Intelligent agent based, autonomous real-time structural health monitoring system


Kyle Mitchell


"This research on real-time autonomous health monitoring consists of design and fabrication of small sensor nodes, development of intelligent agents for autonomous operation of the sensor nodes, development of real-time health monitoring algorithms, and prototype systems. This is a totally new approach to design goals that have been posed before. Equipping a structure with technology allowing it to call and report about its health is important in this era of increasing structural complexity. Creating a technology that allows the monitoring system to adapt to changes in the structure and be updated online increases the usefulness of the proposed technology."--Introduction, page 1.
