Liquid Light Wireless Sensor for Structural Damage Detection

National University of Singapore, Singapore, Singapore

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

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 “warning” light signal to deliver wirelessly to the owner.

Primary Application Area: Electronics, Sensors & Communications

Technology Development Status: Prototype

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 4

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: A device which could be mass deployed cheaply and installed easily on-site.The sensing component is available in the market and mass production is straightforward, requiring minimal investment. It could be interrogated wirelessly and the alert message delivered via SMS or through radio transmission to the base station.
