When disaster strikes, it often makes us question how safe the buildings and places we work, live in and visit are. But I would like to pose a different question. “What if we had the power and ability to bring these buildings and places to life to pre-empt potential disasters, and avoid them completely?”
The simple answer to that question is that we do. We just need apply our thinking differently and adapt existing solutions to meet different needs. By using smart structural health monitoring devices, we can measure the current state of a building and be aware of potential risks, giving us the opportunity to mitigate these before incidents occur.
The solutions currently available are the sensors connected directly to the Internet from the structurers they are installed at. The data acquired is then processed in real-time into information that is easy to analyse and reuse. This is available immediately on the web page of your application. The information is accessible through any PC, tablet or smartphone connected to the Internet.
Through harnessing the power of IoT, we can create healthy and safe environments for citizens.
