A close-up view of the MicroStrain NANO-DVRT wireless sensors clamped to the Liberty Bell (the top and bottom sensors are the same design, but oriented perpendicular to each other). With even tiny motions of the crack-on the scale of millionths of a meter-the metal rod shifts its placement. The movement is detected by electrical coils, and that information is transmitted to a wireless receiver. The wires visible in this image are connecting the sensors to a wireless transmitter inside the Bell.
