Abstract

The dot.rural WiSE (Wireless Internet Sensing Environment) Project is researching and testing new digital techniques for monitoring the natural environment, underpinned by developments in state-of-the-art communications and low-cost sensor technology. The system combines still and video capture to monitor a remote location, with sensors and remote processing accessible via satellite Internet access. Night-vision capable cameras and sensors can be flexibly combined to allow triggering methods for the capture of imagery to evolve as operational experience is gained. The demonstration will display the start-to-finish process of sensor activation, communication from the remote site and image capture, to final storage of data in a web database. Visitors will be shown samples of the in-house developed sensors/cameras and will be able to trigger (or try to avoid triggering) capture of images. Remote access will be provided with live streaming from the field site, monitoring of the current sensor values, and the status of the solar-powered battery system. Previously captured sensor data and imagery will be available.
