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.

Environmental Sensor Projects at SSU Fairfield Osborn Preserve

AITIS Laboratory is currently in process of implementing a number Environmental Sensor Network projects at the SSU Fairfield Osborn Preserve.  These interdisciplinary projects have three main objectives: (1) to improve the robustness and flexibility of the existing network, (2) to create and deploy a WiFi-base backbone so variety of IP-based sensors can be deployed, (3) to design an open-frame network where various research projects related to communications and networking can be tested.

Currently, the following projects are active:
1- SkyViewer - a sensor network that can be activated by variety of sensors, such as motion detectors, temperature,  sound, etc.
2- Indoor monitoring system - adding an indoor wireless touchscreen monitor to view weather conditions, and power consumption
3- Improve the  existing weather station and strengthening its wireless link
4- Debug the existing energy monitoring system with forced reset
5- GateKeeper - designing a monitoring system on the gate
6- Establishing a 3 node WiFi back bone
7- Exploring the possibility of combining WiFi and Fiber Optics for the backbone
8- Power monitoring system; here is a the link to OpenEnergy Monitoring
9- Water monitoring system (funded - graduate and undergraduate students can apply)
10- Installing Fiber Optics to connect the weather station to the office
