Integrated Vision-Body Sensing System for Tracking People in Intelligent Environments

Chapter · January 1, 2023 An integrated sensing architecture and “big data” analytics that leverages real-time human biometric monitoring with state-of-the-art human activity recognition (HAR) can open exciting new possibilities in human health and performance monitoring. We presen ... Full text Cite

Optimal Event-Based Policy for Remote Parameter Estimation in Wireless Sensing Architectures Under Resource Constraints

Journal Article IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications · July 1, 2022 Energy is a resource bottleneck in wireless sensing networks (WSNs) relying on energy harvesting for their operations. This is pronounced in WSNs whose data is used for remote parameter estimation because only a subset of the measured information can be tr ... Full text Cite

Autonomous wireless sensor deployment with unmanned aerial vehicles for structural health monitoring applications

Journal Article Structural Control and Health Monitoring · June 1, 2022 Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) equipped with onboard sensors empower end-users to collect data within a wide range of civil engineering applications such as structural condition assessment. While UAVs have been used primarily as mobile sensing platforms t ... Full text Cite


Chapter · January 1, 2022 This chapter explores different issues related to the resilience monitoring of railroad systems. Profiles of some of the most important hazards considered by railroad managers and owners are described, with specific focus on the various stressors that pose ... Full text Cite

Quantitatively linking long-term monitoring data to condition ratings through a reliability-based framework

Journal Article Structural Health Monitoring · September 1, 2021 The holy grail of structural health monitoring is the quantitative linkage between data and decisions. While structural health monitoring has shown continued growth over the past several decades, there is a persistent chasm between structural health monito ... Full text Cite

Bio-compatible wireless inductive thin-film strain sensor for monitoring the growth and strain response of bone in osseointegrated prostheses

Journal Article Structural Health Monitoring · May 1, 2021 Many benefits can be derived from in situ monitoring of the growth, load response, and condition of human bone. In particular, bone monitoring offers opportunity to advance understanding and designing of osseointegrated mechanical components fixated into b ... Full text Cite

Combination of damage feature decisions with adaptive boosting for improving the detection performance of a structural health monitoring framework: Validation on an operating wind turbine

Journal Article Structural Health Monitoring · March 1, 2021 This article proposes the deployment of adaptive boosting (AdaBoost) for combining damage feature decisions and improving the detection accuracy of structural health monitoring algorithms. In structural health monitoring applications, damage-sensitive feat ... Full text Cite

Probabilistic fatigue assessment of monitored railroad bridge components using long-term response data in a reliability framework

Journal Article Structural Health Monitoring · November 1, 2020 Fatigue is a primary concern for railroad bridge owners because railroad bridges typically have high live load to dead load ratios and high stress cycle frequencies. However, existing inspection and post-inspection analysis methods are unable to accurately ... Full text Cite

Partial Composite-Action and Durability Assessment of Slab-on-Girder Highway Bridge Decks in Negative Bending Using Long-Term Structural Monitoring Data

Journal Article Journal of Engineering Mechanics · April 1, 2020 This paper uses long-term bridge monitoring data to quantitatively assess the composite action exhibited in slab-on-girder highway bridges and investigates the potential relationship between composite action and deck deterioration over negative bending reg ...
