The expansion of smart structures and the development of intelligent materials science as a crucial research endeavor has challenged our conventional approach to new material development. The most concerned challenges are perhaps the processing and eventual use of material systems that are inherently dynamic. Therefore, new instrumentations and smart sensing and processing should be introduced. In this paper we introduce new instrumentation to characterize and develop new polymeric structures for smart sensing. Our system is now capable of on-line sensing in real operational environments. To give intelligence to the system, an artificial intelligence method has been adopted for computerized chemical detection. Using conductive polymers, this system is able to recognize different solutions based on the reading of their pH vs R (resistance).
