• Preparing for our first deployment

    The team has been working long hours this summer preparing the waggle system for deployment outside in the harsh Chicago-land winter.  The School of the Art Institute has been designing the case and mounting equipment for the Array of Things project in Chicago.  Their designs look fantastic, since the Array of Things project is also a form of urban art.  At the other end of the spectrum are the climate and weather sensors for rooftop deployment, to study how the urban landscape and heat island impacts weather.  For that application, Waggle doesn’t need to be dressed for a night out in the city…. It’s all business, measuring wind speed, precipitation, along with other environmental sensors.  We may even point a camera and infrared sensors up at the sky to measure cloud cover.

    In the next week or two, something similar to this lab version will make it to the roof of building 240 at Argonne National Laboratory.
