This report proposes a suite of wireless sensing solutions for continuous transportation-infrastructure monitoring. First, various traditional and modern sensors and sensing platforms are described in detail, based on their principles of operation, suitability for transportation-infrastructure monitoring, and issues concerning their use. Then, a suitability-assessment survey conducted to select suitable inter-sensor and sensor-to-cloud communication technology for lower bandwidth and higher bandwidth requiring sensors is presented. Important observations are made, and conclusions are drawn based on multidisciplinary analyses of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) of various communication technologies and proposed wireless architectures for sensing infrastructure for smart mobility (SISM). Finally, recommendations are made concerning the implementation of proposed wireless architectures for wireless and continuous monitoring of the Illinois Autonomous and Connected Track (I-ACT).
