Gathering scientific data in the field can be labour-intensive and expensive. SDATS aims to reduce the cost and increase the effectiveness of scientific data-gathering through application of network-based sensing and computing.

Our purpose is to enhance the ability of scientists to:

  1. gather data from their subjects at any location;
  2. move data rapidly and securely to permanent storage; and
  3. retrieve data efficiently from storage.

The SDATS research group aims to develop innovative, real-world automated data gathering systems for scientists who require data collection in remote, hazardous or challenging environments.

If you have a natural science research project with data-collection challenges please contact Richard Vaughan or Greg Mori.
