Since the recent US election there’s been a lot of talk in the media and on financial news programs about the upcoming boom in infrastructure construction. There is no denying that a significant investment in US infrastructure is needed.

But to ensure the longevity of any new infrastructure construction and safety of those who use it there has to better ways to monitor for wear and tear beyond visual inspections. Key infrastructure such as highways, bridges & tunnels, waste-water treatment and airports need to be smarter – a technological upgrade is required. And that is where wireless technologies can play a role.  Deploying a wireless sensor network to monitor key infrastructure and transportation networks along with visual inspections can expand longevity and improve safety.

Toshiba offers wireless connectivity solutions for many applications, across all primary standards and technologies. These ICs enable high-speed, low-power media sharing, HD video streaming, data transfer between mobile and stationary devices, and easy Internet connectivity -- hundreds of millions of Toshiba wireless ICs are in use today.
