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
