Executive Summary

The authors describe a novel optical sensor system designed for high-fidelity image acquisition in wireless sensor networks. The system uses precision optical equipment as well as a high-resolution imager yielding accurate observations - a prerequisite for many image processing techniques. In order to deliver the lifetime and durability required by long-term environmental monitoring campaigns they present a custom solution that is optimized to integrate seamlessly into a power efficient wireless sensor network. The imaging system presented is based on a state-of-the-art wireless digital SLR camera, that has been packaged, augmented with the necessary power supply, heater, system supervision and control to operate reliably under the most hostile and extreme environmental conditions.
