Retrieving data from agricultural sensors, such as soil moisture, temperature, electrical conductivity, etc., outside of established cell phone and Wi-Fi networks can be difficult. Typically, this requires the user to remove a memory card from the sensor physically. Data transferring in farm fields can pose an issue due to a lack of infrastructure to support data logging. This can include a lack of cell towers for cell service and a lack of roads to make accessing the sensors non-feasible. The ability to receive information from these remote field sensors can make the difference in knowing where to distribute crop-related resources.

Role: I had got our UAVs ready to function in the field so we could collect data. This includes getting them designed for long range abilities and ensuring the security of our system. I had also gotten the wiring schematics and circuits ready to go so we could make a functional prototype.
