This work discusses a methodology used to implement a data-driven strategy for Structural Health Monitoring. First, the instrumentation of the equipment is detailed by describing the main components to be installed in the test structure in order to produce guide d waves. Specifically, an active piezo active system is used for this purpose , which consists of piezoelectric devices attached to the test structure surface and an ac quisition system. Then, the programming procedure to embed the damage detection algorithm is defined. In particular, the mathematical foundations and software requirements for impleme nting the preprocessing stage, baseline model building, and statistical index computation are specified. As a result, the Odroid-U3 computational core has the capability t o perform online damage assessment. Finally, some validation tests are presented through videos and short real time demonstration. Experimental data are recorded from two test specimens: i.) a lab carbon steel pipe loop built to emulate leak scenarios, and ii.) an aluminum plate, where mass adding is used to emulate reversible damages. The results reported i n this work show the high feasibility of the proposal methodology for obtaining an online embedded monitoring system with several advantages such as low cost, easy configuration, expandability and few computational resources
