SEMAT

 

 

The National and International Research Alliances Program of the Queensland government award project funding for the Smart Environmental Monitoring and Analysis Technologies (SEMAT) project, incorporating researchers from the University of Queensland, James Cook University, Queensland Cyber Infrastructure Foundation, Torino Foundation, Politechnic di Milan and the Danish Hydraulics Group Australia. It also links in with ISSNIP via researchers at the University of Melbourne and ISSNIP AI’s at UQ and JCU.

The project aims to progress a working proof-of-concept next generation wireless marine sensor network to a commercial prototype to enable real time monitoring of the marine environment. The system will utilise an integrated, sensor network solution using underwater radio-frequency communication. The
project has already generated new links between ISSNIP and other groups associated with the international project partners.

SMART ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING AND ANALYSIS TECHNOLOGIES (SEMAT) PROJECT


The National and International Research Alliances Program of the Queensland government awarded project funding for the Smart Environmental Monitoring and Analysis Technologies (SEMAT) project, incorporating ISSNIP researchers from the University of Queensland, James Cook University, Queensland Cyber Infrastructure Foundation and the University of Melbourne along with researchers from the Torino Foundation, Politechnic di Milan and the Danish Hydraulics Group Australia.

The project aims to progress a working proof-of-concept next generation wireless marine sensor network to a commercial prototype to enable real time monitoring of the marine environment. The system will utilise an integrated, sensor network solution using underwater radio-frequency communication. The project has already generated new links between ISSNIP and other groups associated with the international project partners.
The central aim of the SEMAT project is to build a “smart” wireless sensor architecture that will allow users to apply both their existing hardware and
emerging technologies within a multi-scale monitoring system that allows them to interrogate and task aspects of the sensor network according to need and monitoring outcomes. This includes the ability to feed monitoring data into intelligent analytical tools that streamline the synthesis of results and the subsequent management decision making.
