Smart Structures is the global leader in wireless Embedded Data Collector (EDC) solutions used to determine pile capacity and integrity in real-time. Smart Structures' technology and solutions improve the quality of bridge pilings and deep foundations while reducing the overall foundation costs. This is accomplished through their field-proven SmartPile® EDC technology that is embedded in every concrete pile and accessed wirelessly during installation and post-installation. Through simple-to-install sensors and easy-to-use software, the effort and time required to test piling during driving has been significantly reduced. When applied to every pile during construction, it is possible today to drastically improve the overall quality of the foundation and, more importantly, reduce the cost of the structure by reducing the design overbuild (AASHTO LRFD resistance or phi).
