Using wireless to make bridges safer

Abstract:
Researchers at Southern Illinois University Carbondale (SIUC) have received US$1 million from the Federal Highway Administration to build a network of Internet-based wireless sensors and databases that would alert authorities in real time about the health of bridges and other infrastructure.

The collapse of the Interstate 35W bridge in Minneapolis earlier this year sent universities into overdrive promoting the wireless and nanotechnology research going on in their labs that could one day make bridges and other structures safer.
