dc.description.abstract Structural health monitoring (SHM) has become an inevitable part in a life span of a structure due to its potential to ensure the public safety and to increase the life span of the structure. Monitoring any kind of structures for various parameters, using wireless smart sensors has gained popularity in recent past. This paper discusses the development of low cost real time wireless smart sensor monitoring system to monitor early age concrete temperature in real time. Temperature of two early age concrete mixes (Mix1, Mix2) were measured in real time for 24 hours by using DS18B20 sensors connected with the NodeMcu, which is an open source IoT platform. Temperature measurements were saved and visualized in real time using Thing SpeakTM which is an open IoT online platform with MATLAB analytics. The temperature sensorDS18B20 was selected such that it is suitable to measure temperature readings of the concrete without any interference of the chemical reactions in concrete. Calibration methods and temperature variation with different concrete mixesare also discussed. It could be seen that the wireless temperature monitoring system performed adequately and it can be considered as a better low cost alternative for traditional wired temperature monitoring system. en_US
