Title:
Development of sensing platform for the monitoring of building and construction components
Agreement Number:
991784
Agreement Value:
$20,000.00
Agreement Date:
Aug 1, 2022 - Feb 28, 2023
Description:
MesoMat has developed a new form of sensor, plastic based sensing fibres, which measure strain in critical components that experience large deformations. This sensing innovation is combined with electronics and software to provide a platform for the real-time monitoring of systems which cannot be measured today, including commonly used components in the building and construction industry. In these applications, MesoMat is developing new methods to implement its platform and utilize the output data for the monitoring of installation procedures, to predict and to prevent failure and to optimize long-term performance.
