Continuous GPS: Pilot Applications - Phase II

The primary objective of this research was to evaluate the feasibility of applying Global Positioning System (GPS) technology in the study of geotechnical phenomenon by developing, integrating, and test deploying a GPS-based instrumentation package utilizing emerging high precision Real-Time Kinematic GPS (RTK-GPS) and wireless communications technologies. The instrumentation package would be primarily configured for the remote monitoring of landslide movements. Bridge monitoring applications would also be explored during the study.
