Abstract

In this work, we present an innovative sensing and monitoring system of indoor environment parameters and structural elements of a building. The system has been conceived and optimized for modern wooden structures; it is organized with a control unit and sensing nodes that can be arranged freely. This architecture allows to provide continuous information about inside and outside ambient temperatures, moisture conditions and tri-axis inclination of structural elements. The data, continuously monitored, are collected on a web server able to check the overall status of the building and to generate automatic warnings and alerts for any criticisms. A web-application has been also developed for system monitoring, giving the possibility to create summary report and to analyse the data profiles. The system is currently working on a novel public construction fabricated in XLAM and designated for school activities in Lucca (Italy). All measurement results will be shown in the full paper.
