In the last years, the development of monitoring systems for critical transport infrastructures is gaining an increasing interest, as pointed out by the scientific literature and the significant number of recent research project regarding this specific topic.

In this general frame, attention is also focused on the embedded miniaturized sensors, which have the main advantage to ensure an always updated long term monitoring and provide a more reliable early-warning system.

Abstract

In the last years, the development of monitoring systems for critical transport infrastructures is gaining an increasing interest, as pointed out by the scientific literature and the significant number of recent research project regarding this specific topic. Therefore, as first topic, the present article discusses about the necessity of holistic approaches/visions that are based not only on the integration of different sensing technologies, but more important on a multidisciplinary approach encompassing disciplines related to the sensing, ICT, positioning technologies and civil engineering to properly assess existing infrastructures. Afterward, this contribution will provide a brief survey of the different classes of sensing techniques of specific interest for the civil engineering. In this general frame, attention is also focused on the embedded miniaturized sensors, which have the main advantage to ensure an always updated long term monitoring and provide a more reliable early-warning system. Finally, it is evident how the concepts here specifically considered for transport infrastructures can be easily extended to monitoring other kinds of critical infrastructures, urban areas (built environment) and cultural heritage.
