Project funded II

And yet a project is funded, this time by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA). We are (from “my” side) going to investigate the use of sensor nodes in a project called:

Local-scale early warnings for drought – can they increase community resilience?

Main applicant is Prof. Lotta Andersson at SMHI and Linköping University. Please find more information at:

An abstract from the research application:

The project aims to, based on a pilot study in Mozambique (Limpopo river basin), test how such a system could be created in reality. Possibilities and constraints will be analyzed and recommendations for design of drought monitoring and forecasting for local-scale early warnings as a way to increase community resilience will be provided. To address these objectives, the project team assembles a strong constellation of researchers in hydro-climatological modeling (P. Graham, L. Andersson), WSN (J. Wikner), model-assisted participation (L. Andersson, J. Wilk), and vulnerability assessments (J. Wilk).

  1. Wow!! Great news for all the “smart dust” team.
    We always believed in you and the deployment of smart dust (WSN).
