Abstract

In collaboration with The Morton Arboretum, the team developed an environmental sensor package for use in arboreal canopies through drone deployment. The device measures temperature, humidity, ambient light, UV, and particulate matter, recording all logged data to an onboard microSD card. The environmental sensor package can be autonomously stationed in a tree's canopy for up to six months.
