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.

Solar-Powered Wireless Weather Station

The purpose of our project is to build the first solar-powered wireless weather station at the Fairfield Osborn Preserve. Weather stations play a critical role in Preserve programs by providing climate data relevant to a wide variety of environmental studies. While many researchers have collected data over the years for their individual projects, the Preserve has had a critical need to collect consistent reliable data from a single site to provide long-term comparisons in climate. This weather station will serve as the primary site for the Preserves long-term commitment to gathering data on changes in the environment.
