Mebius Sensor

The mission of the Mebius Sensor Project is to sense the natural environment of Shonan Fujisawa Campus (SFC). We have deployed 15 wireless sensor nodes each embedded with a temperature, humidity and an illuminance sensor on the circumference of the campus. Each sensor node is equipped with a solar battery panel, and forms a multi-hop network that covers our campus. The Mebius Sensor system is designed to be a platform for various ubiquitous computing applications such as enhancing people’s awareness of the natural environment.

Research Goal

Creating a Campus Sensing Platform for Ubiquitous Services

  • Services that enhance our awareness of the natural environment
  • Services that inspire users to discuss about the environment


  • Sensor node deployment
  • Flexible spatiotemporal query of the past sensor data
  • Real-time delivery of sensor data to the services
  • Inter-campus cooperation of the sensor networks

Plan and Schedule

We are planning to cover the whole SFC canpus with 15 sensor poles. We have deployed 3 poles in September 2009.

Detail of the Sensor Pole

The Mebius sensors have utilized eKo mote by Crossbow Inc. as its sensor nodes, and have installed a solar radiation sensor, a temperature sensor and a humidity sensor onto each node.
