abstract

  • © 2015 IEEE. This paper introduces a low-power wireless climate monitoring system with an RFID security access feature for mosquito and pathogen research. Mosquito-borne diseases, which are critical threats to human health, include malaria, yellow fever, dengue fever, and West Nile Virus. The wireless monitoring system provides environmental data such as temperature, humidity, wind speed, and wind direction. The measured data can be used to predict the habitat of mosquitoes and be used to recommend the amount and location of pesticide application. This paper describes the design and implementation of the low-power wireless climate monitoring system with various environmental sensors, 2.4-GHz wireless module, RFID reader for the security access control, audio system, and a solar charger system. The measured data was received and processed by a custom Windows application. The measured data was available through both desktop and mobile internet browsers and a mobile android application. Five wireless climate monitoring systems were used for multiple field tests. The analysis example of the pseudo climate data for the reduced use of pesticides is also presented.
