Real-Time Spatial Monitoring of Vehicle Vibration Data as a Model for TeleGeoMonitoring Systems
MetadataShow full item record
This research presents the development and proof of concept of a TeleGeoMonitoring (TGM) system for spatially monitoring and analyzing, in real-time, data derived from vehicle-mounted sensors. In response to the concern for vibration related injuries experienced by equipment operators in surface mining and construction operations, the prototype TGM system focuses on spatially monitoring vehicle vibration in real-time. The TGM vibration system consists of 3 components: (1) Data Acquisition Component, (2) Data Transfer Component, and (3) Data Analysis Component. A GPS receiver, laptop PC, data acquisition hardware, triaxial accelerometer, and client software make up the Data Acquisition Component. The Data Transfer Component consists of a wireless data network and a data server. The Data Analysis Component provides tools to the end user for spatially monitoring and analyzing vehicle vibration data in real-time via the web or GIS workstations. Functionality of the prototype TGM system was successfully demonstrated in both lab and field tests. The TGM vibration system presented in this research demonstrates the potential for TGM systems as a tool for research and management projects, which aim to spatially monitor and analyze data derived from mobile sensors in real-time.
