Evaluation of Environmental Wireless Sensor Network - Case Fox house
Environmental monitoring in agriculture is an interesting and promising area of application for wireless sensor networks. Wireless sensor networks can deliver valuable information about environment, animals and their habitat. This paper describes a case where such sensing application was implemented by the authors together with biologists. The wireless sensor network collected data in hard outdoors conditions over a period of one year, during which luminosity, temperature and humidity were measured in a fox house. Evaluation of IEEE802.15.4 based communication used was one of the main subjects of this paper.
