This paper attempts to validate the effectiveness of wireless sensor unit by field experiments on a self-anchored suspension bridge. This wireless sensor unit was developed at Konyang University's SIS lab in Korea for real-time dynamic response measurement of structures. This sensing unit called SWMAS(Smart Wireless MEMS-based Sensor System) consists of a sensor system module, a control and processing module, and a wireless modem module. In order to evaluate whether SWMAS would be applicable to structural monitoring system, experiments were performed to a full-scaled structure, which was a self-anchored suspension bridge, a wire-based monitoring system placed inside. In the field experiments, the data from the ambient vibrations of the bridge were acquired in real-time using SWMAS. All data acquired were compared with those of wire-based monitoring system. As a result, the comparison proved that SWMAS would be effectively applicable to smart monitoring system.
