Water Temperature in the Intercoastal Marsh

All of our sensing projects operate under the same broad umbrella.

Our initial outdoor sensing project has goals that are simple in appearance:

  1. MUST: Log temperature once every 10 minutes.
  2. MUST: Be waterproof.
  3. MUST: Monitor temperature for at least 6 months on a single battery charge.
  4. SHOULD: Be able to retrieve data from the sensor in the field.
  5. SHOULD: Be able to retrieve data without removing the sensor from its embedded location.
  6. SHOULD: Be able to retrieve data using an Android mobile phone.

The last three design goals are separate because we might achieve one, but not all three.
