Colloquium by Rolf Hut

Low cost sensors are the future, if only we could manage the data.

Having worked on prototyping low cost hydrological and meteorological sensors for the past few years I have come to realise that in a lot of fieldworks, measurement campaigns and even operational sensing systems data storage and transfer are often a more time (and frustration) consuming issue than the sensors themselves. 

I will review and demonstrate a selection of novel, easy to implement solutions for logging and transmitting data that have become available because of the continuous growth of the "maker movement". Anyone that has ever cursed at a logger, stared in disbelieve at corrupted csv files on wet external harddrives, or juggled IP-addresses and DNS servers to pump data from the field to a remote server will learn the latest solutions that do not require a phd in micro-electronics or computer science to implement.
