    Abstract

    The feasibility of reliable wireless data transmissions over distances of several metres through dense materials was investigated within a trial project on wireless monitoring systems. By means of the project it could be shown that specially developed wireless sender units were able to transmit a signal provided by a temperature sensor through rock mass, compacted bentonite and reinforced concrete in the range of decimetres to several metres. Latest developments by VTT in the field of wireless sensor and network systems offer a large potential for sensor-based performance and condition monitoring of (infra)structures.
