A robot unleashed to roam and collect vital data about our environment. For this phase of the competition I am including Enocean sensors.
Carrier is designed to contain Tracker, Forecaster and Replicator is a large chassis. The hardware is the PiFace and Raspberry Pi 1 to control mortars and of course the Chassis itself.
I am also going to run this on a solar battery pack from Amazon.
Replicator is designed to capture images and video . The data will be saved to One Drive. The hardware is the Raspberry Pi Zero W and camera. The software is Deep learning object detection with OpenCV.

Forecaster is designed to track current weather conditions at the current location for the Collector. The hardware is a Sensor Tag and a Raspberry Pi 3. Software includes Telegraph (Times -Series Data Collector) and Grafana. I’m also going to include Darksky forecast for the small area that I will be testing.
Tracker is designed to trace the route of the Collector with a GPS Tracking device that can stream its coordinates to a near real-time map view. The hardware is a Raspberry Pi 1 with Microstacknode GPS addon board. The coordinates are streamed to Initial State and displayed in real time on a map.
