Liquid Light Wireless Sensor for Structural Damage Detection
National University of Singapore, Singapore, Singapore
The device comprising of two solutions contained in separate chambers, lights up when the device is bent/deformed during a damage event e.g. structural damage, landslide,etc. Being a non-electrical sensing device, it does not generate spark. A wireless light-detection circuitry allows the â€œwarningâ€ light signal to deliver wirelessly to the owner.
