A pilot web-shared controlling and monitoring system for real-timeassessment of civil engineering structures
Abstract: A Webshaker pilot project is initiated to demonstrate the feasibility of live web-based monitoringand control of experimental setups. Such experimental setups are relevant to real-time safetyassessment of civil engineering structures. The developed framework allows for remote dynamictesting and monitoring of civil-infrastructure facilities. The Internet allows real-time worldwideaccess to the recorded response and associated live video/audio signals (Tele-presence). In thispaper, the employed technologies are described in detail, and the pilot project is presented(http://webshaker.ucsd.edu). Feasibility of this technology for both practical and researchapplications is discussed.
Keywords: monitoring, remote control, safety assessment, data acquisition, www, CGI,shaking-table, video streaming, dynamics.
