Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) is the science of assessing the integrity of structures such as buildings, bridges and aerospace structures. SHM systems strive to detect and locate damage in structures as early as possible. Today most automated SHM system has been suggested that wireless sensing can potentially bring about a dramatic reduction in cost by doing away with the cabling cost. Self-organizing dense wireless sensor networks that are cheap and easy to install can potentially bring significant benefits to SHM systems. This paper introduces a wireless sensor network system based SHM, the system includes the self-developed sensor node for SHM and the artificial intelligence routing for data transmission.
