Due to the general overloading of vehicles, premature failure of bridges and roads are more and more obvious. Structural behaviors of engineering structures need real-time monitoring and diagnosis, timely detection of structural damage, evaluation of their safety, and necessary precautions, in order to prevent major accident such as the collapse of bridges and roads. But the existing monitoring system, which is very expensive, does not apply to the low budget structures. Therefore, a potable, low-cost, low-power structural monitoring system, which consists of electric resistance strain gauge, collection and execution unit, graph collection system and analysis software, is designed in this paper. The system can collect the critical data about the force of pavement to take the certain judge algorithm. The alarm will be given and the overburden data will be transmitted to IDC to make the further analysis when the pavement is overburden. At the same time, the plates of overweight vehicles can be collected and sent to the relevant departments. The system has the features of simple structure, easy realization, and low cost, which fills the application gaps in structural health monitoring of low-budget project.
