At the International Workshop on Structural Health Monitoring (IWSHM) conference at Stanford University in September of 2017, Phase IV Won the prestigious “The Most Practical Structural Health Monitoring Solution for Civil / Mechanical Systems Award“. The contestants for the award demonstrated their Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) solution to the participants at the conference and the demonstrations were judged by a panel of experts.
Phase IV Engineering demonstrated its Battery-Free RFID Embedded Strain sensor system during the “SHM in Action” event. During the demonstration, Phase IV showed that the sensing system could read through several inches of concrete, displayed accurate strain readings, could read multiple sensors at the same time, and could be read by both desktop and hand-held RFID readers.
See the video demonstration at Stanford Unversity that won the award.
