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.

Sensor technology is in a transition phase – Interview with ISN Conference speaker Rob Jansen, TNO

Sensor technology is in a transition phase – Interview with ISN Conference speaker Rob Jansen, TNO

Rob Jansen knows everything there is to know about sensors. For TNO, a major Dutch independent research organization, he specializes in ‘structural health monitoring’, technology to assess the condition of infrastructures and buildings based on sensor data. He also works on developing new sensor technology. Continue reading “Sensor technology is in a transition phase – Interview with ISN Conference speaker Rob Jansen, TNO”

“Sensors, how to get them faster, smaller and add more functionality” – Presented by Rob Jansen, TNO

“Sensors, how to get them faster, smaller and add more functionality” – Presented by Rob Jansen, TNO, at Intelligent Sensor Networks Conference, Nov 15, at High Tech Campus in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

I will highlight the development effort within TNO to make sensors smaller and faster and ways to add more functionality. I will focus on sensors for Structural Health Monitoring purposes.
