Wireless Sensors Could Avert Bridge Disasters

A University of Maryland researcher has developed inexpensive wireless sensors that could avert the kind of bridge collapse that killed 13 and injured 145 along I-35W in Minneapolis four years ago. Kalantari’s tiny wireless sensors monitor a bridge’s structural health, such as strain, vibration, flexibility and cracking. The sensors transmit minute-by-minute data to a central
