Battery Powered Remote Communications via Cost Effective Satellite Links

Project number: 
Rain Bird Corporation
Academic year: 
Utilizing off-the-shelf development kits from SWARM/SEMTEC/SPACEX: explore, document, and build a system that can exhibit the relationship between polling frequency, message sizes, and other identified parameters versus power consumption. Build a system to prove real-world versus theoretical. One may suggest building an end-to-end system, and use a mobile app to adjust variables to measure the power effect. Based on the understanding of the physical system, build a model to represet how changing parameters impacts power in the face of environmental uncertainty. Validate the model with a subset of real experiements.
