Increased adoption of wireless technology significantly reduces monitoring costs as the need for installation and protection of cables is eliminated. Also, the wireless system is flexible in nature. In other words, various sensors used in the wireless structural health monitoring system are organized by wireless transmission, which makes updating, adding, moving, and replacing of sensors easy after the initial installation. Technological advancements related to wireless technology have led to the development of products to which instruments such as strain gauge sensors, tiltmeter, crack meter, inclinometers, linear voltage displacement transducers, and accelerometers can be integrated for centralized data collection and analysis. Furthermore, the wireless monitoring system is highly efficient and reliable. The hardware of the wireless system is highly integrated, and there are no additional supporting components such as long cables, signal analyzers, and data memory storage solutions, reducing the complexity of the overall system.

With the increasing importance of large civil projects and frequent occurrences of structural failures, structural health monitoring systems are becoming more and more crucial. The basic approach of any structural health monitoring system is to continuously collect data about the overall condition of the structure from various sensors installed at several locations on the structure. This data collected from sensors provides information about various parameters such as loading, stress, strain, acceleration, and temperature among others. Furthermore, it is challenging for structural engineers to obtain, process, store, and analyze such a huge volume of data. To resolve this challenge, software platforms, customized software applications, and software algorithms are being adopted.
