Implementing sustainable technology to monitor the integrity of the nation's bridges

An interesting broadband application where the University of Miami is using sensor networks to monitor the integrity of bridges.

"With the Federal Highway Administration estimating that more than 70,000 of the nation's bridges are structurally deficient, the system Nanni and his team develop could be used as a national model for monitoring the structural integrity of bridges nationwide and alerting bridge owners to potential dangers."
