Wireless nanosensors for embedded measurement in concrete structures

In this work we propose a wireless architecture for embedded monitoring in concrete. The modular structure of the system allows it to be adapted to different types of sensors. We present the application of such architecture for the detection of microcracks in concrete. A carbon nanotube strain sensor recently developed by the group is used to track mechanical deformations. Full temperature compensation is achieved by a specific conditioning circuit.
