Rugged Wireless Sensor Networks for Remote, Harsh Environments - Lessons Learned in the Arizona Desert
As the network edge continues to expand, sensor networks are being tasked to report real-time data from increasingly remote, harsh locations. Challenges for network engineers include environmental factors that can impact reliability and performance. Weather, moisture, heat, dust, shock, vibration, electromagnetic interference and power surges can all be addressed successfully - if you know how. Using a recently completed well monitoring project in the Arizona Desert as a test case, this session will explore its design challenges, review successful solutions that already exist, and discuss technological developments to help sensor network designers solve problems in the future.
