Mega-structure Diagnostic and Prognostic System is a package of technologies for structural monitoring, control, maintenance and management for buildings, bridges and other mega-structures.  Making use of the fusion of technologies from different disciplines, such as sensing, communication, information technology, signal processing, data management, system identification, etc., the system is empowered to monitor loadings and structural responses, perceive structural mechanism, recognize normal operation patterns, control structural behaviour, evaluate structural performance, and guide structural maintenance and management.
