Microwave based Environmental Monitoring
|Bidrag från Vinnova||2 473 400 kronor|
|Projektets löptid||november 2017 - oktober 2019|
Syfte och mål
The aim of the Microwave based Environmental Monitoring project (MEMO) is to further develop rain monitoring using microwave links in telecommunication networks, to explore the potential to utilize such links to monitor snowfall, fog and air quality, and to investigate hydrological applications and sustainable business models.
Förväntade effekter och resultat
The expected output is 3 fold: 1) quality improvement in the current system via a reduction in artifacts and bias 2) insight in the ability to monitor new criteria such as snow, fog and air quality, possibly using alternative frequencies 3) improvement in hydrological modelling and forecasting and the subsequent ability to impact real-time water management
Planerat upplägg och genomförande
Initially, the project will focus more heavily on current system improvements, including collecting data in Stockholm, and methods to collect snow, fog and air quality. The second year will see heavier focus trial implementation of snow, fog and air quality as well as hydrological applications.
