Recently wireless sensor networks (WSN) has risen as one of the advanced candidate technologies in order to provide more efficient structure health monitoring (SHM) solution in construction sites. In this paper, we proposed WSN monitoring framework in building sites based on 3D visualization and Augmented Reality (AR) in mobile devices. The proposed system applies 3D visualization and AR technology to camera-enabled mobile devices in WSN environment in order to gather much more information than before. Based on the proposed system, we made an experiment to validate the effectiveness of 3D and AR mode using collected data in IEEE 802.15.4-based WSN.
