An array of more than 60 sensors has been installed on the pier of San Giorgio Levante in the Genoa harbor. These sensors allow the measurement of the pier displacements during the dredging works, ship docking and in the long term. The sensors measure the curvature changes in the horizontal and vertical planes and allow a localization of settlements with a spatial resolution of 10 m over a total length of 400 m. The sensors can be measured automatically and remotely. This paper presents the sensor installation and the results from the first monitoring period..
