Though it may look like a simple hamster ball, a new spherical robot may assist farmers monitor soil moisture levels and temperature, according to a redOrbit.com article.
Developed by a team from the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (Technical University of Madrid), the ROSPHERE wirelessly reports information from its sensors back to farmers, letting them know when their crops need attention.
The ROSPHERE moves by shifting its center of gravity, similar to how a hamster rolls in its ball. This unique method of locomotion gives the ROSPHERE an edge over wheeled or tracked robots, which can struggle on uneven or cluttered surfaces.
The scientists who designed the ROSPHERE are developing a second prototype with enhanced mechanics and the capability to utilize additional sensors.Read More
Some of the most interesting data in the world of river and stream monitoring come at times when it's practically impossible to capture—during extreme weather events, for example. Timing alone makes capturing unusual events a challenge, and these kinds of issues have prompted researchers to use classic monitoring data along with new technologies to develop and improve hydraulic modeling for estimating river flows.
Steven Lyon , a Conservation Scientist with The Nature Conservancy, Professor at Stockholm University and Associate Professor at The Ohio State University, spoke with EM about the research .Read More
Cornell University Biological Field Station at Shackelton Point: Monitoring New York’s Largest Interior Lake for Sixty Years
Lars Rudstam, Professor of Aquatic Science at Cornell and Director of the Cornell University Biological Field Station at Shackelton Point, says that he has long held an interest in lakes in general, so naturally the Great Lakes, the largest freshwater lake system in the world, have held a fascination for him for many years. He also works on Oneida Lake, the largest lake wholly inside New York. Oneida Lake waters, traveling from the Lake to the Oneida River, then to the Oswego River, ultimately flow into Lake Ontario. “In addition to lakes in general and the Great Lakes, I have been especially interested in the impressive data series that has been collected for Oneida Lake,” Rudstam notes.Read More
