A prototype was developed for the wireless technologies to create networks for gathering data from distributed sources. Wireless technologies enable development of 'smart' buildings that monitor environmental parameters such as force, stress, temperature, tilt, and moisture. The prototype uses a minimum of components to provide analog to digital conversion, sensor sampling, signal multiplexing, and data transmission. The 'smart' building material packaging effects shows that incorporating such wireless sensing systems in skyscrapers, bridges, and homes are feasible.
