RFID Keeps Watch of Rainforests in Australia
RFID Can Aid Biodiversity and Keep the Environment in Balance
Scientists in Australia have come up with an ingenious way to collect data in the rainforest. They are installing sensors that communicate via RFID, telling researchers about temperatures, humidity and other important environmental factors.
The scientists are installing the network in Springbrook National Park to measure how the factors affect plants of a variety of species as well as animals. The network could revolutionize environmental monitoring and provide a cost-effective method for protecting and restoring environmentally sensitive rainforests.
The project is particularly important because nearly half of Australia’s plant and animal species rely on the biodiversity of the rainforests.
