Sprayable sensing network technology for structural health monitoring

A novel breed of nanocomposites-inspired sensors has been developed that can be sprayed directly on flat or curved engineering structural surfaces, such as train tracks and airplane structures. The sprayed sensors can be networked, to render rich real-time information on the health status of the structure under monitoring.
