Sensors

Sensor trip ideas

I’ve just put in a Seeed order for some more Grove sensors (because they’re very easy to set up and use). Here’s what I’m thinking of doing with them: Collect the usual environmental data – air quality, dust, temp/humid, water, alcohol – and compare against readings from the same sensor set that’s in the Brck office. Wildlife detection using motion sensor, mike, and camera unit. Investigate fire/smoke effects using smoke and gas sensors; I’m more interested in effects of different types of cooking fuels in houses, but could adapt this for camping too (a group I belonged to lost a member to fumes in their tent, so this is of value to me). Human monitoring using alcohol detector and galvanic skin response (e.g. sweat density) monitor. I’m also thinking about what sort of UAV or balloon data would be useful from a short trip. Even 10 minutes of data would be good – especially if it’s…
