The new monitor measured ground-based conditions, including temperature, humidity, and moisture. The project would place a laboratory-prepared mycelium sample within a 2” square mesh. When placed in tainted soil, this sample would allow the mycelium to remove the contaminants.
The monitor provided constant data to a dashboard, allowing the user to have a live feed of the soil improvement process.
The system had to be in a contained case; however, it had to provide access for the sensors to monitor the three key features. 3D printing enabled the case to be designed and fitted around the circuit board.
The system was designed with a built-in battery cell and a low Bluetooth mesh network enabling it to run from its network. This allowed data to be recorded and used in data reports.
