UMD Researchers Develop New Wireless Sensors for Prevention of Bridge Collapses

A researcher, Mehdi Kalantari, who is an electrical engineer working at the University of Maryland (UMD) has developed a new and economical early warning system, which would prevent bridge disasters. “Immediacy, low cost, low energy … add up to a revolution in bridge safety monitoring,” Kalantari says. This wireless technology could help to prevent bridge collapses like the one that happened on 1st of August, 2007 in Minneapolis, which resulted in the death of 13 people and injuries in 145.
