Researchers to Develop Wireless Sensor Network That Would Help Fight Potato Rot

Unbeknownst to most consumers, roughly 30 percent of the potatoes harvested spoil before they reach a grocery store shelf. Boise State and Idaho State University researchers were recently awarded a one-year $413,681 Idaho Global Entrepreneurial Mission (IGEM) grant to develop a wireless sensor network that would be able to detect temperature, humidity levels, and carbon dioxide and ammonia levels in real time, to help with early detection of potato rot.

The Future of Our Cities: Engineers Test Resilient, Intelligent Infrastructure

Engineers at the Cornell Geotechnical Lifelines Large-Scale Testing Facility tested several advanced sensors developed by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, and the University of Cambridge Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction. The sensors – which can collectively measure strain, temperature, movement and leakage – were installed along a 40-foot section of a hazard-resilient pipeline being tested for earthquake fault-rupture performance. The results could have huge consequences for urban planners and municipal leaders.
