    Abstract

    Recent technological advancements in sensors, processors and communications technology make it viable to perform digital acquisition of environmental data from remote locations. Declining costs and miniaturisation of electronics and sensors have enabled design of systems for intelligent remote monitoring. These advances pave the way for new tools to support field work by virtually extending researchers' reach to the field study area from the comfort of their offices. The Wireless Internet Sensing Environment project developed an architecture providing control and retrieval of data from networked sensors and cameras at a remote location using Internet backhaul. Satellite connectivity enabled this equipment to be deployed to remote locations to support an ecological application. This paper describes architecture and innovative design features for this challenging problem space, including motion event detection, power management and a method to upload collected data.
