Progress Update On Aqueous Sensor Nodes

Communication / Programming
The nodes are now communicating with each other at a very basic level. They are also sleeping until requested. However, there are a fair number of bugs that must be worked out this week. I hope to have them all working in harmony to report to the base station and sleeping properly by next week .

Aqueous Sensor Nodes

In cooperation with the Sawyer Working Group, a new version of the culturally situated sensors is currently in development for deployment in rivers and lakes. These networks will hopefully provide an inexpensive means of constantly collecting data on contamination and pinpoint and eliminate sources of contamination. These sensor nodes are to have new sensors developed by Professor Sawyers team for detecting bacteria, but will build off of the platform developed previously. Read the rest of this entry »
