Wireless Wonders

If you're wondering how we get the data for the graphs, this is the place to find out! We use brand-new wireless "mote" technology. Motes are like tiny computers with sensing capabilities. Our team has designed sensors, which are attached to the motes. These work like mini weather stations to keep an eye on conditions inside the glasshouses at the Botanic Gardens.

Each mote is about the size of a pack of playing cards and has 3 main parts: the sensor board, the radio transmitter/antenna and the battery supply.
