Autonomous structural monitoring systems

Phase 1

Autonomous structural monitoring systems

Acciona wants to embed wireless sensors systems into their composite building elements. This will directly contribute to reduce maintenance costs and increase safety. Electronic functionalities include sensing, wireless data transfer and energy harvesting.

Phase 2

Autonomous structural monitoring systems

Sensor-composite assembling and validation

A first step will be to verify sensor integrability, a series of pultrusion trials will be carried out embedding temperature and RFID sensors in both glass and carbon fiber FRP composites. Different options will be

Phase 3

Autonomous structural monitoring systems

The following services will be applied to the Acciona case, facilitating the development of the knowledge transfer services.

  1. IPR services
  2. Standardisation & safety assessment
  3. Business modelling service&am
