Citizen Sensors for SHM: Use of Accelerometer Data from Smartphones

  title={Citizen Sensors for SHM: Use of Accelerometer Data from Smartphones},
  author={Maria Q. Feng and Yoshio Fukuda and Masato Mizuta and Ekin Ozer},
Ubiquitous smartphones have created a significant opportunity to form a low-cost wireless Citizen Sensor network and produce big data for monitoring structural integrity and safety under operational and extreme loads. Such data are particularly useful for rapid assessment of structural damage in a large urban setting after a major event such as an earthquake. This study explores the utilization of smartphone accelerometers for measuring structural vibration, from which structural health and… CONTINUE READING
