This work is aimed to simplify this setup by using stand-alone smart dampers developed to carry out operations of vibration control in an autonomous way, thus containing an actuator, the sensors needed to evaluate the vibratory state of the structure, and a micro-controller embedding different control algorithm. The paper shows that the use of more devices, each working independently to perform a decentralized control, can be profitably used to better suppress vibration of the structure.
