Nano-synchronized sensors enable four broad categories of applications:
- Unambigious documentation. Now the measurement is not only a physical quantity, but it is documented with its position (Latitute, longitude and height) and a precision timestamp. This greatly simplifies post-processing of data.
- Cause/Effect Analysis: Domino effects can be precisely identified in time and space. “Who shot first”, or “What happened first” is documentated using nano-synched sensors and, for example, can be used for accident analysis.
- Localization: Multiple sensors can make 3-dimensional beamforming and source location possible. When used with sound or vibration signals, it makes earthquake and tsumani detection possible.
- Control: Multi-point excitation using actuators/exciters can control the behavior of large structure such as buildings and bridges.
