The EcoSensor Pod, designed by the UCSD Data Turbine group, is a self-contained hardware/software solution for environmental monitoring, disaster response, and other real-time sensing applications. We improved upon the design of the Sensor Pod by 1. Developing a custom PCB for the system to remove the problem of wires becoming de-attached in harsh environment deployments and 2. Creating an easy-to-use web application that provides the UCSD team with the ability to view various charts displaying both past and live, real-time data. These modifications were successfully implemented and tested and will make future deployments of the EcoSensor Pod more robust and user friendly.
