Implementing Structural Health Monitoring through LoRaWAN®

Move Solutions partners with The Things Industries

March 19, 2021
By The Things Industries

Engineers and architects design structures to withstand a wide variety of forces. However, no construction system can be built to be absolutely risk-free: every structure is inevitably subject to stress, deterioration and ageing. That’s why Move Solutions and The Things Industries join forces to enable the digitization and control of structural works by allowing the integration of LoRaWAN data seamlessly into an existing Internet of Things network for structural monitoring.

The solution in practice: implementing LoRaWAN networks to prevent failures in civil and private structures.

LoRaWAN technology is designed to wirelessly connect sensors over long distances with low power consumption. Therefore, it is the perfect solution for real-time monitoring of structures such as bridges, viaducts, buildings, dams and construction sites.

Move Solutions implements LoRaWAN networks to measure certain structural parameters (dynamic displacement, static deformation, tilting, crack opening and closing, etc.). When an attention threshold is exceeded, the sensors transmit the data to LoRaWAN gateways which then forward them to The Things Industries network server (Move solutions devices and gateways). Therefore, the network is flexible and easily reconfigurable by adding sensors and gateways to the solution.
