TIME, the century-old weekly magazine, names the Rebel Concrete Strength Sensor in “Best Inventions of 2023 – 200 innovations changing how we live,” a November 4 edition feature. The sensor is the charter product of Wavelogix Inc., an Indiana startup founded by Purdue University Reilly Professor of Civil Engineering Luna Lu. Measuring concrete matrix strength development, the embedded device enables engineers and contractors to make data-driven formwork placement and removal decisions to improve project efficiency and safety. Agencies testing the  Rebel Sensor so far include the Indiana and Texas Departments of Transportation.
