Before it senses our mistakes

Although a relatively young technology, the potential of Wireless Sensor Networks is encouraging intense research focus.

Future systems are likely to require both small nodes and a high density of deployment, making efficiency and adaptability crucial to further development,

says Professor Anders Rydberg.

To work Successfully
Wireless sensors need to be..

Capable of operating in Harsh conditions

Numerous innovative integrated antena designs have been presented as per their uses and specifications.

Low Power consumption

As sensors become smaller the area available for the antenna is reduced.

Most promising application area for WSN due to the necessity of proving the agricultural production chain in terms of precision and quality.
Precision Farming System has following parts : 
Sensing agriculture parameters. Identification of sensing locations and  data gathering. Transfer data from crop field to control station for decision making. Actuation and control decision based on sensed data.

What We can use.

Soil Moisture sensor:

Watermark Sensor:

And so many .

Growing concern worldwide for air pollution,biological threats and security issues has led to an increasing demand for sensors in multiple application areas, thus

calling for a fast development of small, reliable, inexpensive sensors which can be easily integrated in various devices and equipments.

Research efforts worldwide span diverse areas, including new materials such as nanotubes and nanofibers, miniaturization of electronics through nanotechnology, or integration of several sensors in artificial noses.

Available instruments to sense :
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Dissolved gases meter (CO2, O2 etc.) Humidity measurement instruments. Groundwater monitoring equipment. Oil sensors and analyzer. Radiation detectors. Water quality testing instruments.

What CAN be done!
Sense the changes in Environment and using those data to interpret the conditions and problems prior. Checking the sources and elements regularly to maintain those as per standards.

To See this and go deeper. 
Change in ICE level of HIMALAYA affects whole INDIA. Imbalance in one chemical changes others itself. Weather and Climate is connected globally as well as locally.

All of these involves a careful system design, since requirements are very strict. battery life-time maximization, robustness, recovery strategies, network flexibility and reconfigurability.
Hope Continues as said for Wireless Sensor Network.

"Very complete and insightful"
