Abstract

As Malaysia is witnessing rapid growth in the construction of large engineering structures to meet the requirement for the nation’s economic growth, societal activities and the aspirations of its population, these artificial structures are, however, subject to deformation caused by heavy loading, geotechnical movement and severe weather conditions. To ensure the sustainability of these structures so as to prevent devastating consequences due to structural displacement, periodic monitoring and in-depth analysis of structural behaviour based on a large set of variables contributing to the deformation are highly demanded. GPS is one of the latest all-weather satellite-based sensors that can be used to detect first stage disaster and further mitigation. Through the ingenious approach of RTK-GPS, 3D coordinates can be observed in real-time with precision up 2 cm ± 2 ppm. The RTK-GPS however has certain limitation in displaying the observed data for prompt and on-site analysis. This paper aims to overview the development of GPS real-time instrumentation control for structural health monitoring. Further discussion includes a simulation test conducted at the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) Skudai campus, to study the performance of this integrated system for continuous and automated structural health monitoring.
