Paper Abstract

A protype of Remote Intelligent Monitoring System (RIMS) was developed for intelligent bridge and infrastructure maintenance. It consists of MEMS sensor, micro-controller with buffer memory and Ethernet controller. Each component is carefully chosen. In the software, TCP/IP and http are adopted in the communication part. The RIMS prototype is a small and relatively inexpensive. It was installed to measure the acceleration of a light pole and its effectiveness was demonstrated.
