Thomas Watteyne (Eva) : Wireless In the Woods: Monitoring the Snow Melt Process in the Sierra Nevada
Historically, the study of mountain hydrology and the water cycle has been largely observational, with meteorological forcing and hydrological variables extrapolated from a few infrequent manual measurements. Recent developments in IoT technology are revolutionizing the field of mountain hydrology. Low-power wireless networks can now generate denser data in real-time and for a fraction of the cost of labor-intensive manual measurement campaigns.
Thomas Watteyne is a member of the Eva team at Inria Paris. In 2016, as part of the "Save the peaches" project, he equipped Argentinian orchards with sensors in order to predict the arrival of frost and save the crops. The team is now planning to use the same technology in order to predict snow melt in the Sierra Nevada.
In April 2016, the Inria-Paris EVA team has started an experiment in the Mendoza region in Argentina. The goal is to predict frost events to save the harvest of peaches.
Two projects proposed by the Inria-EVA team made it into the semi-finals of the 2015 IPSO CHALLENGE! The "IP for Smart Objects (IPSO) Alliance" holds an annual contest to show what is possible utilizing the Internet Protocol (IP) and open standards in building the Internet of Things (IoT). The IPSO CHALLENGE has become the reference competition of its domain. The 10 semi-finalist projects will compete in the finals in San Jose, California, on December 1st, 2015. May the best innovation win!
