Whispers Of The Mountain

Andres Rico

Whispers Of The Mountain is a  sensor system mounted on snow skis.  The system allows for crowdsourcing environmental data of mountains. 

The system can record 6 axis accelerations, GPS coordinates, temperature, atmospheric pressure, ambient humidity, and distributed surface forces. We aim to record  data that could help experts describe different materials, terrain conditions, and equipment usage patterns. In order to understand and analyze the recorded data, a 3D geo-spatial visualization tool was developed. 

This project was developed as part of City Science's ongoing collaboration with the Principality of Andorra along with the support of the ActuaTech Foundation.
