Development of a Practical Monitoring System of Urban Infrastructure for Disasters and Accidents

Research Project Outline

The research project aims at constructing a practical sensor network system to quantify the risk of individual infrastructure by monitoring its hazard as well as vulnerability. Toward this, the-state-of-the-practice sensors are fully utilized, and new optical sensing systems and a vunerability assessment technique using semi-active sensing of small and moderate hazards are also developed. The system is implemented in the buildings of the main campus of the University of Tokyo and viaducts of high speed railway are also selected as experimental sites.
