Abstract

An integrated vehicle health monitoring system is being developed, with its initial application being to detect and locate impacts of fast particles, and characterise and respond to the damage such collisions may cause. Large numbers of sensors are used, with the continuous monitoring and processing of signals being performed by autonomous local agents that communicate only essential information with their nearest neighbours. This multi-agent system is completely scalable and generates emergent and intelligent responses, making possible the detection and diagnosis of damage even in the presence of existing damage in the system or in the structure it is monitoring.
