Huntington Botanical Gardens - Sensor Web 3.0
Building on the successful deployment in 2000 of Sensor Web 2 at the
Huntington Botanical Gardens,
Sensor Web 3.0 represented a new milestone in this emerging technology. The individual sensor pods were more
environmentally robust, consumed significantly less power, and were more user flexible than their predecessors. Each pod
measured light levels, air temperature and humidity, with optional measurements of soil temperature and soil
moisture. In addition, battery levels for each pod could be monitored for diagnostic purposes.
A significant new feature in the Sensor Web 3.0 system was the addition of a
web interface to allow remote viewing of Streaming, Real-Time Data Graphs from
fielded Sensor Webs. This location was the first Sensor Web
deployment to utilize this new feature.
Deployed October 29, 2001, this Sensor Web ran continuously for nearly 10
months before being replaced by the newer Sensor Web 3.1 technology.
