Progress in Development of the Low-Power Wireless Multiple Temperature Sensor Pole for Pesticide, Agriculture, and Mosquito Research Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • © 2015 IEEE. This paper introduces the development progress of a wireless multiple temperature sensor pole. It can be applicable to pesticide, agriculture, and mosquito research. Monitoring multiple soil and air temperatures at different heights and depths can provide useful data to various fields of study and research. The proposed wireless multiple temperature sensor pole can measure four temperatures that are two air temperatures and two soil temperatures at different heights and depths. The wireless temperature sensor pole is about 10 feet tall with a 3.3-feet distance between temperature sensors. The temperature sensor pole electronic device incudes four temperature sensors and a 2.4-GHz wireless module. The measured data can be processed by a custom Windows application. The data can be accessed through PC and mobile internet browsers and an android application. Measurements in the field using five temperature sensor poles were carried out. The measurement results provide useful information for pesticide, agriculture, and mosquito research areas.
