Waspmote Smart Cities Sensor Board
The Waspmote Smart Cities Board can be used for monitoring outdoor locations. Apart from supporting the same humidity, luminosity and temperature sensors as other Waspmote sensor boards, this board supports sensors for specific applications, such as: sensors designed to monitor cracks in buildings and structures, a linear displacement sensor for crack width, a single-strand strain gauge for crack detection, a dust and particles sensor to measure air quality, and a microphone adapted to measure environmental noise (see note about microphone below).
This board plugs into a Waspmote main board. Sensors are not included! See a list of sensors below, in the Optional Recommended Products list. Each available sensor can plug into the Smart Cities Board two (or three) different ways: directly via on-board sockets, or remotely via Phoenix push-in terminals (i.e. so you can build a probe cable to connect to the board).
Note: If you want to use the microphone, it should be purchased at the same time as this sensor board and the intended host Waspmote main board, for calibration purposes. The calibration data will be written to the Waspmote. Expect a 1-week lead time, as the calibration is performed by the Waspmote engineers in Spain. Also note that the dust sensor does not come with a compatible plug-in connector. You must solder on a connector yourself or wire it to the appropriate terminal.
The board measures 73.5 × 51 × 1.3 mm so it fits nicely on your Waspmote. The operating temperature range is -20 to +65 °C (but the range of individual sensors varies).
- Noise maps — Monitor acoustic levels in the streets of a city in real time
- Structural health monitoring — Detect new cracks or monitor propagation of existing cracks (or bridge flex)
- Waste management — Measure levels in trash bins to optimize collection schedules/routes
