Weatherbox

See the sensor network page also.

Our main project is the SCEL Weatherbox.

The objective of this project is to design and develop low-cost, accurate, and reliable environmental sensor modules that can easily be reproduced for mass deployment on rooftops across the University of Hawaii at Manoa campus. The meteorological data collected from these modules will assist in planning future renewable energy installations as well as providing risk mitigation for electricity generation through the development of renewable resource prediction and forecasting algorithms.

The Weatherbox is split several subsystems.

The main goal of this lab is making Hawai'i a more sustainable place to live in. One part of tackling this problem is creating a microgrid for UHM that is independent of Hawaii's grid. In order to accomplish this, we are looking to find optimal places on campus to install renewable energy sources, such as PV. To find these optimal places, our lab is working on designing and building a sensor network that collects reliable weather data that will be analyzed and open to the public through a website.
