WIND SONIC METER
IoT is a fast-growing field and it is bringing a lot of changes in human life to make our lives easier. IoT device also provide a lot of useful data which can be analyzed to understand the mother nature and to perform different kind of predictions. Wind Sonic Meter is an IoT enabled 2D-type Ultrasonic Anemometer which calculates wind speed, wind direction and wind gust and sends the calculated readings on the cloud from where weather predictions can be performed. It provides real-time wind data which can be visualized on android app ‘ThingsView’ or on webpage.
The designed Wind Sonic Meter is also cost-effective because of the chosen components such as Wi-Fi Module, GSM, HC-SR04 and ATmega-328. Two different versions of wind sonic meter were deployed at top of Computer Information and Systems Engineering Department, NED UET. Data from testbed deployment were compared and calibrated by NRG-40H commercially accepted mechanical anemometer deployed at top of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering Department, NED UET and satisfactory results were obtained.
Research paper on initial version titled as “A cost-effective solution for IoT enabled Ultrasonic Anemometer Sensor Design” is already accepted and presented in 1 st International Conference on Innovations in Computer Science and Software Engineering iCONICS’16 taken place at NED UET.
Won 1st prize
Wind Sonic Meter also won the 1 st prize in CACHE’16 NED UET and 2 nd prize in “All Pakistan DICE Automotive Competition”. Team is working hard to commercialize the designed meter and produce funding’s for its Research Center.
