Developing Bridge Monitor Platform Using GPS and Communication Technology

In order to maintain security of the bridge and prevent life and property losses caused by earthquakes, typhoons, erosion and other disasters, it is worthwhile to explore the installation of monitoring and management system for bridges. However, in the current bridge management process, most of the discussion is divided into two parts: superstructure and substructure. In this research, the Wireless Sensor Network based accelerometer and inclinometer, as well as GPS correction, are installed on the superstructure to obtain complete bridge monitoring information. In the substructure of the bridge, scour monitoring equipment, two-way accelerometer, settlement terms and inclinometer are installed. All monitoring information is integrated to develop a comprehensive assessment of indicators that effectively monitor bridge safety.
