The application of health monitoring systems to railway structures is now being discussed and some experimental systems have already been implemented and tested. It is expected that health monitoring systems will bring positive effects on structural maintenance. We have developed a health monitoring system in which one can select two methods of data collection: one is a data collecting system with a RFID tag and a PDA (Personal Digital Assistant) and another is a data collecting system with a wireless radio network (ZigBee) and a cellular phone network. This paper describes the overview of our sensor data collecting system and its application to railway structures. Keywords: wireless sensor network, structural health monitoring.
