Advancing Sustainability Using ICT

The environmental issues we now face are believed to be the result of our social systems. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has the potential to help us better understand, monitor in read-time, and reduce our impact on the environment. AITIS Lab, in the Department of Engineering Science, is committed to utilize the engineering expertise and research activity of its faculty to initiate innovative and sustainable graduate and undergraduate projects to educate future environmentally responsible and skilled engineers. We work with local industries and organizations to provide sustainable engineering solutions. Click here to learn more about our research activities and ongoing projects .....more; / Main Page.

Intelligent Mobile Environmental Geo-Sensor (iMEG)

Sonoma County offers a rich variety of interwoven soils, elevations, and micro-climates. The aim of this project is to design a mobile distributed sensor network to measure various climate changes across the country. The iMEG (Intelligent Mobile Environmental Geo-Sensor), also known as climate pod, can record the climate conditions of different locations we visit! iMEG can be installed on moving vehicles or simply put in a backpack. The logged data can be transmitted to the server located at the Sonoma State University, which will be available to remote users to study.
