By incorporating sensing capabilities in passive radio-frequency identification (RFID) tagging technology it is possible to extend the coverage of Internet-of-Things (IoT) to monitor the health of different segments of a large civil infrastructure like pavement highway, buildings or a multi-span bridge. The challenge in this regard is to deliver energy to the RFID sensors that are embedded inside the structures in a manner that they can continuously sense for occurrence of any rare structural… CONTINUE READING
