(Chinese Association of Automation) An international team of researchers has built a new sensor network that can monitor two crucial activities, namely biodiversity, or the variety of life, in a particular habitat or ecosystem, and identification of possible illegal activities such as logging or poaching in protected areas. This wireless recording network is capable of recording an ecosystem’s sounds with the same quality as devices that have been used to date, but it is significantly more energy-efficient and cost-effective.
