Smart Fence and Other Wireless Sensing Applications for Critical Industrial Environments [BPN596]
Following the successful showcase of the Smart Fence technology, this project aims at using MEMS and Optical Sensors in combination with Low-Power radios to implement industrial wireless sensing applications. Using inertial sensors, valve position monitoring and machine vibration sensing are added for safeguarding both personnel and equipment. Finally, gas leak detection and localization is implemented and tested using IR combustible gas sensors. This project is concerned both with the COTS-based hardware and software behind each application.
