Abstract
The E-SMART network provides a standard means for interconnecting sensors and actuators for a variety of uses, but was specifically developed for environmental applications. Nomadics proposes to develop a generic hardware and software interface to allow existing sensor technologies to be rapidly adapted to operate as E-SMART nodes. Using this enabling technology, Nomadics will implement a suite of environmental sensors as E-SMART nodes. The sensors selected for E-SMART implementation have particular significance for use in environmental applications. The initial node with incorporate standard water quality instrumentation including pH, dissolved oxygen, conductivity and temperature, implemented in a configuration that allows subsurface measurements to be made. Other E-SMART nodes to be implemented include a MEMs-based volatile organic compound sensor, and a microspectrometer.
