Acquisition of live (real-time) and objective data about plant cover state in most cases is very important factor, which causes future strategy of keeping parklands and woodlands and proper decision making in ecological monitoring and environmental protection. Certainly, it would be ideal to obtain information about improvement or worsening of state of parklands or woodlands beforehand, but not after the event. It lets to avoid increasing costs on environmental protection and save plants and trees from possible loss, and also to help protect plants and trees of parklands and woodlands from viral and bacterial diseases.
Therefore, development and preparing for full-scale production of new low-cost wireless smart biosensors and creating of data acquisition systems on their base for ecological monitoring is actual problem for environmental protection not only in Ukraine, but also in other countries.
Project purposeThe main project purpose is developing and preparation for serial production of low-cost wireless smart biosensors for express-diagnostics of plant state, creating of proper software and methodical support for combining of developed biosensors in wireless sensor networks, what make possible to spread the application of new information technologies and equipments for ecological monitoring and environmental protection, for example, for estimating of viral and bacterial load, control of influence of climatic conditions and express-diagnostics of common level of impact of stress factors of natural or anthropogenic origin on green plantations of woodlands and parklands.
Implementation of distributed wireless smart biosensors in the area of ecological monitoring and environmental protection makes possible to protect plants from viral and bacterial diseases, decrease influence of stress factors of natural and anthropogenic origin on green plantations, save fertilizers and protection tools etc. Real-time information obtaining about worsening of plant state on some territory indicates clearly about worsening of ecological state on this territory in whole.
