A Critical Component in the Far North

Established an embedded network for weather monitoring across Baffin Island

Collaborators:

Symboticware Incorporated, Baffinland Iron Mines Corporation, Peregrine Diamonds, Laurentian University, Centre for Excellence in Mining Innovation (CEMI).

This project saw the deployment of the SymBot, a fully-capable micro industrial computer, input/output processor, and two-way satellite transceiver which operates on very low power drawn from solar. Uniquely and critically, the SymBot provides two-way satellite communication, so data can be collected remotely, as well as provide the option to re-configure the instruments without expensive site visits.

The enhanced weather stations will serve as hubs for a more complete environmental monitoring network, consisting of remote sensors, probes and motes.
