There are often many challenges to be faced
during research and development of new technology.
Our researchers have worked very hard to
make the motes and sensors in the Botanic
Gardens work reliably. Here's an example
of just one of the problems our team was
able to solve. The metal frames of the glasshouses
can interfere with the signals transmitted
by the motes. We had to do lots of trials
in different glasshouses to find suitable
locations for the motes where we would get
a strong, clear signal.
