Increased Moisture Detection and Early Warning System for Buildings

This master’s project is focused on construction of system for moisture monitoring in building’s structures and early warning in case of an accident. This system is measures the moisture contained in the construction material. The measuring process is based on resistive method. Simultaneously other physical quantities having effect on moisture reading are measured. These functions are built-in in standalone intelligent sensor communicating via bus with superior system. This project also includes central unit that processes data from several sensors. The data are stored on the SD card and potential problems in the building are detected from them. Maintenance service is warned in case of potential problem.
