Paper Abstract

A sensor node having two types of sensors: sound and seismic units was used for signal collection in a test with different moving light vehicles on a gravel road in a quiet area. An analysis of signals from the node at low frequencies (less than 100 Hz) shows the possibility of tested vehicles detection at long distance. The sound signals for the vehicle motion were detected above the lowest frequencies of 15-20 Hz only while the seismic signals had the maxima in that frequency band. Another test was conducted on the ground to find the common vibrations of a light vehicle and the ground due to vehicle passby in frequencies below 100 Hz. For this signal collection the same sensor node was used. An additional 3-x accelerometer was installed in the vehicle cabin above the transmission. For start time synchronization of recorded signals from the node on the ground and 3-x accelerometer in the vehicle cabin a radio channel was used. Results for this test revealed the vehicle vibrations due to motion were detected on the ground with all three components of the 3-axes geophone for the test track entire distance.
