Large Area environmental monitoring made possible!

Large area environmental monitoring can play a crucial role in dealing with crisis situations. However, it is challenging as implementing a fixed sensor network infrastructure over large remote area is economically unfeasible. A strong collaboration between our lab and Prof. Atif Shamim's lab resulted in a disposable, compact, dispersible 3D-printed wireless sensor nodes with integrated microelectronics which can be dispersed in the environment and work in conjunction with few fixed nodes for large area monitoring applications. As a proof of concept, the wireless sensing of temperature, humidity, and H
2S levels are shown which are important for two critical environmental conditions namely forest fires and industrial leaks.  More details can be found in:
