An Embedded Stress Sensor for Concrete SHM Based on Amorphous Ferromagnetic Microwires
A new smart concrete aggregate design as a candidate for applications in structural health monitoring (SHM) of critical elements in civil infrastructure is proposed. The cement-based stress/strain sensor was developed by ...
A Novel Micro- and Nano-Scale Positioning Sensor Based on Radio Frequency Resonant Cavities
In many micro- and nano-scale technological applications high sensitivity displacement sensors are needed, especially in ultraprecision metrology and manufacturing. In this work a new way of sensing displacement based on ...
Virtual Sensors for On-line Wheel Wear and Part Roughness Measurement in the Grinding Process
Grinding is an advanced machining process for the manufacturing of valuable complex and accurate parts for high added value sectors such as aerospace, wind generation, etc. Due to the extremely severe conditions inside ...
Dealing with the Effects of Sensor Displacement in Wearable Activity Recognition
Most wearable activity recognition systems assume a predefined sensor deployment that remains unchanged during runtime. However, this assumption does not reflect real-life conditions. During the normal use of such systems, ...
RESTful Discovery and Eventing for Service Provisioning in Assisted Living Environments
Service provisioning in assisted living environments faces distinct challenges due to the heterogeneity of networks, access technology, and sensing/actuation devices in such an environment. Existing solutions, such as ...
