Structures such as buildings, bridges, and ships have a certain design life. Monitoring the lifetime of these structures, considering damage due to environmental factors, or predicting potential future events is possible by observing changes in the materials of the structures. For this purpose, Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) systems are used. The development of structural health monitoring technology involves observing changes in building materials through periodically sampled response measurements. For data collection and monitoring from these structures at any time and from any location, Internet of Things (IoT) technologies are integrated with the Structural Health Monitoring system. Especially for ships, since ships are more exposed to environmental factors such as wind, waves, and storms, SHM is important to track damages and take necessary actions. This paper provides information about the SHM system on ships, the sensors used for this purpose, IoT technologies for data transmission, and recent advances in how these technologies are integrated and other aspects. SHM implementation is a challenging process owing to the large physical dimensions of ship structures, the variability of environmental factors, and data loss due to damages. In conclusion, information is given on how the SHM system on ships can be improved in the future.
