Professor Lynch in Engineering 360

IHS Engineering 360 recently published an article titled, “Smart Sensors Hit the Road,” which features the research of Professor Jerry Lynch.| Short Read

The article looks at how electronic sensors are playing a role in monitoring U.S. infrastructure.

“Sustainable infrastructure comes not just from the materials but also the technology supporting it. The Laboratory for Intelligent Systems & Technologies (LIST), which is a part of the University of Michigan Civil and Environmental Engineering Department, is looking at sensing, computing and actuation technologies to improve the resiliency of civil infrastructure,” the article states.

“In some instances, we can actually control or configure an infrastructure system so as to prevent it from being damaged, or, if it is damaged, to ensure that it still has functionality,” Lynch told Engineering 360.
