SensorScope: Application-Specific Sensor Network for Environmental Monitoring

Date Added: Oct 2010
Format: PDF

SensorScope is a turnkey solution for environmental monitoring systems, based on a wireless sensor network and resulting from a collaboration between environmental and network researchers. Given the interest in climate change, environmental monitoring is a domain where sensor networks will have great impact by providing high resolution spatio-temporal data for long periods of time. SensorScope is such a system, which has already been successfully deployed multiple times in various environments (e.g., mountainous, urban). Here, the authors describe the overall hardware and software architectures and especially focus on the sensor network itself.
