Abstract
This study proposes two algorithms for estimating the maximum response of a building when subject to a devastating earthquake only using a sensor agent robot equipped with an accelerometer situated on an arbitrary floor of the building. The first algorithm is for normal buildings. The second one is for base isolated buildings. The algorithms do not require the information on the input motion. The sensor agent robot may be used for other purposes such as security and lighting control under normal circumstances. Thus the proposed algorithms are very useful tools for a robot-based structural health monitoring system.
