An innovative concept enables deployment of ultra-thin, flexible “sensing tapes”, sampling pressure at multiple locations of a surface in real-time, whereby such tapes can be applied onto highly curved surfaces in various numbers and topologies. A wireless senor interface on each sensing array eliminates the need for cables and complex wiring. Up to six sensor nodes may be installed on the wings of a wind turbine. The nodes remain in a low-power state until they are wake-up by a PC application. Then, after the measurement setup was made and the measurement process was kicked, data will be transmitted in real time to a PC application to immediately see results.
