Abstract—Due to climate change, in recent years, each typhoon has easily brought thousands millimeters of rainfall which is too much for the short and narrow rivers in Taiwan to undertake, thus has led to serious disasters. As the wireless network techniques are well developed, we applied such techniques to the monitoring of bridges. It allows managers to get the information of bridge scouring in a short time, and there would be no necessary for managers to visit site in person. Therefore in this research, the research team has developed a wireless network system. Then we’ve conducted some experimental tests in the hydraulic test station to simulate the condition on site. And the experimental pier scouring data could be transmitted to the computer to do further analysis.

Index Terms—Wireless sensor network, scour monitoring system, bridge.
