Project

Low-Power Wireless Environmental Sensor Node

Groups

Tidmarsh is a 600-acre former cranberry farm near Plymouth, MA that is being restored to natural wetland.  As the restoration proceeds, we have deployed hundreds of wireless sensors to track the environment as it is transformed.  Data from the sensors is made available in real time, feeding a multitude of projects within Responsive Environments.  We are currently developing the next version of our sensing platform, hundreds of which will be installed in the coming months. The sensor node measures and wirelessly transmits temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, sound, motion, and several wavelengths of light.  External probes, such as soil moisture, temperature, and redox potential can be connected as well.
