Summary: In the design of vehicles of public transport as much as private, it is important to know the real load properties which are put under the vehicle. Although typical load histories are available, these files were obtained in other countries where the conditions of the ways and the operation of the vehicles are very different. In order to be able to obtain histories of loads in the conditions of our country, a system based on a wireless sensing modules network has been developed to measure deformations, temperature and accelerations in multiple points of the vehicle in real time. The obtained data of each sensor is prepared, processed, stored and transmitted in time intervals towards a receiver, which is in charge to send them to a Internet server for its storage, visualization and analysis for any user connected to the network who have accessibility to the collected information and can make the pertinent procedures and actions. In this work the design of the instrumentation system is based on a wireless sensing modules network and its uses the GPRS protocol which is based on GSM cellular technology, it permit send all the data received from each wireless module to the server host.
