Sensors and sensor networks for smart structures – Presented by Rob Jansen, TNO

Sensors and sensor networks for smart structures – Presented by Rob Jansen, TNO

An overview will be presented for two types of structures, an offshore wind turbine and a bridge, where innovative sensors are installed. The presentation will discuss what type of sensors are used, how they are connected to the sensor network (or sensor system) and what is done with the data being generated.

What drives you?
The development of innovative sensors which are the eyes and ears of a smart structure or machine
