Deployment Map Huntington Botanical Gardens - Sensor Web 3.1
Building on the successful deployments of Sensor Web 2 in 2000 and Sensor Web 3.0 in 2001, Sensor Web 3.1 represents even more sophistication in system design. The individual sensor pods are more environmentally robust and consume less power than their predecessors.

The Sensor Web 3.1 system deployed at the Huntington Botanical Gardens covers a large area and, for the first time, the pods can be viewed operating in public areas. Most of the pods are low to the ground and not easy to spot without a map. Each pod measures light levels, air temperature and humidity, with optional measurements of soil temperature and soil moisture. For example, Pod 6, measures soil conditions in a patch of Day Lilies. By correlating the soil conditions with the local light and temperature conditions, it is possible to deduce the effects of rain in this specific area.

This Sensor Web system ran continuously for 2.5 years, maintenance-free, until it was replaced by the new technology of Sensor Web 5.0. It is the longest lived Sensor Web to date.
