SODAQ is an Open Source Arduino compatible and with Arduino’s easy programming language it is no longer difficult to build stand alone monitoring devices.
People are monitoring a wide variety of environmental parameters. Dataloggers are used for climate related indicators, for pollution monitoring, for logging water heights, logging waterflows etc.
Most of these dataloggers are used in urban settings, where electricity and internet connection is available.
For remote connections the possbilities of getting the data and processing often involves human interaction.
Just think of the man hours going into early warning systems on river water levels in rural south america.
With SODAQ olar powered data acquisition technology, data can be collected virtually anywhere and transferred to the internet at low cost. This makes it an ideal node for “The Internet of Things”
