Wireless infrastructure monitoring

Assistant professor Shamim Pakzad and his students in the department of civil and environmental engineering are using wireless sensors to study the Easton-Phillipsburg free bridge, a portion of which was rebuilt and reopened in 1957 after severe damage from the 1955 flood. According to Pakzad, these sensors are “the equivalent of iPhones in communication. Ten years ago, there was no such thing.” Working with Pakzad are undergraduate students Carley Miller ’12, Kelsey Sheridan ’12, and Ph.D. student Siavash Dorvash. Their work was recently covered in an article by the Easton Express-Times.
