Paper Abstract

The aging infrastructure requires a proactive strategy to ensure their functionality and performance. Innovative sensors are needed to develop infrastructures that are intelligent and adaptive. A power supply strategy is among the crucial components to reduce the instrument cost and to ensure the long term function of these embedded sensors. This paper introduces the results of a preliminary study on using thermo-electricity generation to power sensors. This presents an innovative strategy for long term monitoring of pavement performance.
