The real time estimation of the displacements of civil structures is quite sensitive to the availability of wired links between the sensors and the remote control room. Many kinds of wireless displacement sensors or indirect measurements of them have been proposed. However, most of them suffer of large time delays and accuracy issues. In this paper, the authors adopt a Kalman-filter-based data fusion to make a precise measurement of the displacements in for civil structures and infrastructures. The required accuracy can be reached exploiting the real-time satellite corrections provided by a single reference station and combining them with the acceleration signals coming from three axial accelerometers. A wireless communication transfers the information coming from the coupling of GNSS receivers and three axial accelerometers. The proposed system is validated by control mechanism and laboratory tests. The ultimate goal is a reliable scheme for a real-time structural health monitoring managed in remote control.
