Environmental sensor networks using existing wireless communication systems for rainfall and wind velocity measurements

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The microwave links that form a wireless communication network (WCN) for a cellular network infrastructure can be considered for an environmental sensor network (ESN). Every radio link that connects a base station to the core network is a sensor. For such an ESN, the key challenge is to develop algorithms to estimate the intensity of weather effects that impair communication performance - first rainfall and wind, and then, humidity, fog, and snow.
