This project will utilize a non-contact ultrasonic sensing system previously developed by Summit Safety, and convert it from an engineering tool to a user-friendly system capable of providing real-time measurement of structural stability and advanced warning of pending collapse. The sensor provides high resolution measurements of position, velocity, and acceleration from standoff distances upt to 50 feet. The system incorporates multiple sensors connected by a wireless link to a central display unit. Unlike laser-based systems, the ultrasonic system is capable of operating in dense smoke. Phase 2 will complete the development and testing of the system.
