Bumblebee Project

Nik Sargent
We created the World's 1st tweeting bumblebees. We're using tech to monitor the lives of our bumblebees - visual, audio, temperature, sunlight, weather. We can see how the environment impacts their behaviour and understand, capture and share the marvels of their secret lives.

As a species under great threat, we've brought the critical study of Bumblebees into the Multimedia age and revealed intriguing and new insights based on direct observation.

Dont Flush Me

Leif Percifield
The idea behind this project is to allow NYC residents to help reduce the amount of pollution in the harbor. Some 27 billion gallons of raw sewage is dumped into the harbor every year from Combined Sewer Overflows. A system of sensors and alerts via Twitter enable residents to understand when the overflows happen and reduce their wastewater production before and during an overflow event.

Roach Biobot

NC State University
Our aim was to determine whether we could create a wireless biological interface with cockroaches, which are robust and able to infiltrate small spaces. Ultimately, we think this will allow us to create a mobile web of smart sensors that uses cockroaches to collect and transmit information, such as finding survivors in a building that’s been destroyed by an earthquake.

Shelburne Vineyard remote monitoring

MicrosStrain worked with Shelburne Vineyard in Vermont to implement a wireless remote monitoring solution that allowed vineyard employees to track and respond to current temperature and soil moisture conditions, leaf wetness, and solar radiation. Custom alerts and historical data and control from locations up to 2km apart are part of the system.

Wireless Landslide Detection

AmritaWNA
AMRITA University’s wireless landslide detection system deployed at Anthoniar colony, warns of a possible landslide caused from torrential rains that fall through the region. The lower layer wireless sensor nodes were connected to a hierarchy of upper level wireless nodes, the data was then sent via a directional Wi-Fi link to a Field Data Management Center.
