Built Environment Sensing

See project descriptions

The dramatic reductions in cost combined with enhanced functionalities are driving increasing adoption of sensors in the built environment. This thrust undertakes basic and applied research aimed to develop novel sensors, sensor network architectures, and in-network computing methods to monitor large-scale infrastructure systems. Specifically, applications targeted by the thrust span from monitoring the health of bridges to the monitoring and control of building energy systems.
