University of Arkansas, Fayetteville via ScienceDaily
Engineering researchers at the University of Arkansas have developed a new and inexpensive system to test the structural condition of short- to medium-span bridges. The system employs a network of tactile transducers — small-scale, inexpensive and off-the-shelf devices that create the sensation of shaking through feedback of low-frequency sound waves. These devices, known as "shakers," are normally used in home entertainment systems and amusement park rides to enhance user experience.
