IoT Environmental Monitoring
The Internet of Things paradigm fits particularly well to environmental monitoring. It involves online monitoring of water levels, air pollutant concentrations indoors and outdoors, precipitations, and any other environmental parameter affecting people’s safety and well-being. Using either fully integrated environmental IoT sensors or using IP data loggers to bring existing sensors and monitoring sites to the Net enables simple and efficient collection and dissemination of data and information.
IP communication via WiFi, Iridium satellite, cable Ethernet connections and further existing and upcoming physical and logical channels is the backbone of networked information systems fueled with the latest data clocking in automatically from nearby or remote monitoring locations. Digital Water, Smart Sensors, Smart Cities, and Cyber-Physical Systems are all relying on IoT technology.
Typical applications: alarming, flood warning, natural disaster monitoring, drought alert, supervision of depleting natural resources, air quality monitoring, ...
