A Remotely Deployable Wind Sonic Anemometer
Communication and computing shape up base for explosion of Internet of Things (IoT) era. Humans can efficiently control the devices around their environment as per requirements because of IoT, the communication between different devices brings more flexibility in surrounding. Useful data is also gathered from some of these devices to create Big Data; where, further analysis assist in making life easier by developing good business models corresponding to user needs, enhance scientific research, formulating weather prediction or monitoring systems and contributing in other relative fields as well. Thus, in this research a remotely deployable IoT enabled Wind Sonic Anemometer has been designed and deployed to calculate average wind speed, direction, and gust. The proposed design is remotely deployable, user-friendly, power efficient and cost-effective because of opted modules i.e., ultrasonic sensors, GSM module, and solar panel. The testbed was also deployed at the roof of Computer & Information Systems Engineering (CIS) department, NED UET. Further, its calibration has been carried out by using long short-term memory (LSTM), a deep learning technique; where ground truth data has been gathered from mechanical wind speed sensor (NRG-40 H) deployed at top of Industrial & Manufacturing (IM) department of NED UET. The obtained results are satisfactory and the performance of designed sensor is also good under various weather conditions.
