  • Mapping the results of mobile network monitoring: a GIS solution

    Most of us are familiar with the 'can you hear me now' commercial - a spectacled technician from a major wireless carrier moves about with a dedicated team testing the voice clarity of the network. Geographic information system (GIS) technology (Foote and Lynch, 2011), together with the use of existing data collection hardware, allows analysts to map results of mobile networks both accurately and ...

  • Crucial elements and technical implementation of intelligent monitoring networks

    Growing complexity of water monitoring instrumentation leads to specialized solutions in respect to sensor integration across several measurement device suppliers. Despite efforts of standardization for data interfaces and protocols, problems regarding the combination of several devices to gain the complete picture in terms of water quality remain. This assessment, especially accomplished from ...

  • Monitoring network for Scottish ports - Case Studies

    Historically, ferry masters operating off the west coast of Scotland would have to sail to a port and on arrival visually assess the weather and tide conditions before deciding whether safe berthing alongside the pier or quayside would be possible. This wastes time and fuel, and can causes immense frustration among passengers, who may see ferries come close to a port, but thereafter depart ...

  • Case study - New monitoring network for Scottish ports

    In the past, the ferries operating off the west coast of Scotland would have to sail to port to assess weather and tidal conditions would allow them to berth alongside the pier.  In efforts to save time, fuel and costs, the Caledonian Maritime Assets Limited (CMAL), which owns many of the ferries, ports and harbors in the region, decided to install 15  tide and weather stations, using ...

  • DCWW Network Maintenance

    Hydro-Logic has been commissioned by Dwr Cymru Welsh Water to install, operate and maintain a large network of telemetry enabled reservoir level and compensation flow gauges across the whole of Wales. The initial contract covered five years and following an EU OJEC re-tendering process, a new contract for six years was awarded in April 2006. Both contracts include the survey and rehabilitation of ...

  • Networking to get working

    How do you take your first steps into the oil and gas industry? What can you expect from your career, and how do you create opportunities to move your career forward? These were just a few of the questions considered as part of the Professional Development programme at this year’s IP Week, as Sue Beard, Professional Development Team Manager, explains. Now in it’s fourth year, the ...

  • Information rich monitoring of interoperating services in privacy enabled B2B networks

    We examine how the Liberty Alliance framework for a privacy-enabled Business to Business (B2B) network of interoperating services called a 'Circle of Trust' (CoT) can be leveraged to monitor activity across the entire network for the purposes of safeguarding and improving services. A proposed Audit Trail Service (ATS) is analysed as a first step in monitoring activity within a CoT. Then, a ...

  • Use of geostatistics to evaluate the monitoring well network of a TCE plume

    This paper summarises the use of geostatistics to evaluate an existing network of wells in a groundwater monitoring program. The primary objective was to evaluate whether selective well removal would result in a comparable characterisation of a trichloroethylene (TCE) plume. For adequate characterisation, it is important to retain enough wells to evaluate areas with higher concentrations and to ...

  • A network suitable microwave radiometer for operational monitoring of the cloudy atmosphere

    The implementation of an operational network of microwave radiometers is presently hampered by the cost and complexity of the available instruments. For this reason, the definition and design of a low-cost microwave radiometer suitable for automatic, high-quality observations of liquid water path (LWP) were one objective of the BALTEX cloud liquid water network: CLIWA-NET. In the course of the ...

  • Group method of data handling and neural networks applied in temperature sensors monitoring

    In this work a monitoring system is developed based on the Group Method of Data Handling (GMDH) and Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) methodologies. GMDH creates non-linear algebraic models for system characterisation and ANN is a massively parallel distributed processor made up of simple processing units called neurons. The monitoring system was applied to the IEA-R1 research reactor at ...

  • An ambient air quality monitoring network for Buenos Aires city

    This paper proposes an objective methodology for designing a multi-pollutant urban air-quality monitoring network to detect concentrations greater than reference concentration levels (CL). The network design includes both air quality simulation and an objective analysis based on monitoring tasks. The proposed methodology is applied to the city of Buenos Aires. Pollutants of concern are nitrogen ...

  • Weather monitoring network equipped with Lufft wind sensor VENTUS - Case Study

    In 2010 we won a tender for 30 ultrasonic anemometers (as a part of meteorological weather stations). The National Weather Service of Mexico (CONAGUA) wanted to build weather stations in the southwest of Mexico (States of Chiapas and Tabasco). According to the customer, Ventus-UMB is a very robust, yet precise sensor with a very good price / performance ratio. Moreover, data transmission via ...

  • SeNsiM-SEC: secure sensor networks integration to monitor rail freight transport

    In recent years, the interest in monitoring infrastructures has spread in many application domains, even because of the number of natural disasters and terrorist attacks. This important activity can be seen in the general context of critical infrastructure protection, such as the freight trains meant for hazardous materials transportation. The design of these systems must answer to several ...

  • Evaluation of detection abilities of monitoring networks using multiple assessment criteria

    The problem of evaluation of radiation monitoring network quality is considered. The comparison of possible network configurations is performed on simulated experiments where a twin model is used to simulate observed data. An assimilation procedure based on the particle filter approach is run for each configuration of the network. Specifically, multiple realisations of segmented Gaussian plume ...
