Abstract

Guardrails are common basic roadside devices used to prevent vehicles from leaving the roadway. It is important to ensure their performance through adequate maintenance. A low-power, low-cost wireless sensor network and a simplified structural modeling can be used to remotely monitor the health of a guardrails system. In this paper, the concept of such a system and some early experimental tests are presented.
