美国弗吉尼亚理工学院汪林兵教授学术报告-IoT Sensing Network for Road and Bridge Inspection and Integrated Health & Traffic Monitoring
报告题目：IoT Sensing Network for Road and Bridge Inspection and Integrated Health & Traffic Monitoring
Transportation infrastructure including roads, bridges, tunnels and railroads is an important foundation for national economy and social development. The safety of transportation infrastructures and the safety of vehicles are two inseparable aspects of transportation safety. Integrated monitoring of vehicle conditions and infrastructure health is paramount importance to transportation safety and critical to infrastructure communications. This presentation will cover the innovative development of self-powered piezoelectric cantilever beam sensors, helical-bending optical fiber sensors, a renewable energy powered IoT sensor platform, health assessment analytics for bridges, a method for traffic statistics, and a deep-learning method for vehicle classification from sensed data for integrated traffic and transportation infrastructure health monitoring.
Dr. Linbing Wang is a professor in civil engineering materials and transportation infrastructure at Virginia Tech, and an adjunct professor at the National Center for Materials Service Safety of University of Science and Technology Beijing. He is the founding chair for the Committee on Mechanics of Pavements, and the current Chair of the Nanomechanics and Micromechanics committee of the Engineering Mechanics Institute of ASCE.
