  • Using Electromagnetic induction to characterize soils - Case Study

    Electrical conductivity measurements have been used for years to determine salinity and moisture in soils. Probes were inserted directly into the soil to determine how well the soil conducted an applied current. This process was slow and labor-intensive and was usually reserved for scientific studies. A more recent technique for measuring conductivity is electromagnetic induction (EM), a ...

  • Environmental Sensors in Waste Management

    Issue: As part of an increasing sentiment among European consumers that environmental protection is important, concern about the impact of landfill is growing. Sensor technology makes it possible to measure and control inputs to landfill sites and pollutants arising from them. However, the exploitation - or uptake - of such technology has been lower than expected in the waste management sector. ...


  • Sensor data processing for emergency response

    A gap with current Emergency Response (ER) is the lack of real-time information on the status of an incident. Wireless sensor networks have shown great potential in addressing this gap. However, sensor data streams often contain 'noise', thus they are too difficult to be directly interpreted. In addition, sensor data are often meaningless unless it is associated with time and location ...
