This is the first practical device that enables cloud-based sensing of meteorological information using beacon technology. You can check the observed data in real-time.
It measures temperature, humidity, and atmospheric pressure. Passing by near the sensor, the data will be transmitted to the smartphone, which installed a compatible app. Then, the data will be transmitted to the cloud.
Participation of many members enables collecting data of more detailed areas without huge capital investment. The device is being used for disaster prevention such as forecasting tornadoes that occurred due to the sudden change of atmospheric pressure in a small area, and heavy rainfall that causes a flash flood.
For exchanging batteries, it is designed to open and shut with a coin.
