Abstract

State-of-the-art wireless smart sensor technology enables a dense array of sensors to be distributed through a structure to provide an abundance of structural information. However, the relatively low resolution of the MEMS sensors that are generally adopted for wireless smart sensors limits the network's ability to measure lowlevel vibration often found in the ambient vibration response of building structures. To address this problem, development of a high-sensitivity acceleration board for the Imote2 platform using a low-noise accelerometer is presented. The performance of this new sensor board is validated through extensive laboratory testing. In addition, the use of the high-sensitivity accelerometer board as a reference sensor to improve the capability to capture structural behavior in the smart sensor network is discussed.
