Online (GoToWebinar)
Cost: $0
Members and Government Partners Only

The new generation of Industrial IOT will transform the Industrial Age to the Information Age by exploiting opportunities and benefits offered by Information Age technology and techniques. A key enabler for Industrial IOT are sensors and data procured from them. Flexible sensor networks-based Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) systems can provide real-time and historical sensor based data on the integrity of any structural platform.

This 60-minute Flexinar will provide an overview of current SHM systems for use in various platforms. Background on the technology and examples of usage will be provided, and a pathway to the next generation of flexible sensors will be discussed.
