Environment and Sensor Networks Workshop

US France Young Engineering Scientists Symposium

22-24 Oct 2007

US France Workshop

On Environment and and Sensor Nets


From case studies to research themes l.jpg

From Case Studies to Research Themes

  • Animal Behavior

  • Spatial Variability of Net Primary Productivity

  • Aquatic Systems

US France Workshop

On Environment and and Sensor Nets


Animal behavior l.jpg

Animal Behavior

  • Collar systems for, e.g., badgers

  • 3D accelerometers for dead reckoning

  • Adaptive/intelligent sampling

  • Passive systems (e.g., RFID) for data collection

  • Measurement of interaction

  • Measurement of physiological processes, e.g., heart rate

  • Measurement of environmental conditions

US France Workshop

On Environment and and Sensor Nets


Spatial variation in terrestrial net primary productivity l.jpg

Spatial Variation in Terrestrial Net Primary Productivity

  • High density spatial sampling

  • Example system: flux tower site

  • Measurement of light, soil moisture, relative humidity, temperature

  • Sampling frequency/interval scales from 20 Hz to 30 seconds depending on variable

US France Workshop

On Environment and and Sensor Nets


Aquatic systems physical structure of the environment and net primary productivity l.jpg

Aquatic Systems - Physical Structure of the Environment and Net Primary Productivity

  • Continuous monitoring of phy-bio variables over depth

  • 1 sample/hour

  • real-time data at desktop

  • video (microorganisms)

  • seasonal scales

US France Workshop

On Environment and and Sensor Nets


Unifying issues themes l.jpg

Unifying Issues/Themes

  • Identify research bridges between groups (animal behaviour, Spatial Variability of Net Primary Productivity)

  • Lack of mechanisms for information exchange between disciplines

    • Develop information sources on IT capabilities in environmental sensing

  • Need for testbeds and real-wolrd datasets

  • Data management/standards

    • Promote research across experiments and scales
