Wireless networks of smart sensors with computations distributed over multiple sensor packages have shown considerable promise in providing low-cost structural health monitoring. [...] Key Method These moments: the mean, standard deviation, skewness, and kurtosis are often used to characterize a measured irregular response. Two alternative approaches are presented, each of which can save substantial computer memory requirements and CPU time in certain applications. The first approach reconsiders the…Expand
