Conventional wireless sensors for structural health monitoring do not accommodate the need of high frequency data acquisition. Lack of development of this type of wireless smart sensors will without doubt hinder the applications of active diagnostic methods, normally used in local damage interrogation. In this paper, a novel wireless smart sensor design, using FPGA as co-controller with ultra sensing capability, is presented. The development and some outstanding issues of the sensor are discussed in detail, and a preliminary experimental result is given to verify the effectiveness of this wireless smart sensor design.
