OnePlanet Research Center is working on quantifying the impact of agricultural activity on the environment and nature, by means of fine-meshed sensor networks.
Whether it concerns nitrogen in the air or nitrate in the surface water, all attention is focused on the correct values. But how do you measure them? OnePlanet Research Center develops new technologies that enable accurate and long-lasting on-site measurements, suitable for different end users.
OnePlanet develops fine-mesh sensor networks to measure air quality. Including digital environment for data access. This technology provides insight into local emissions.
In order to be able to measure substances such as nitrate in surface water, OnePlanet is developing a handheld nitrate sensor with partners. This sensor enables farmers to carry out nitrate measurements themselves. For example, they can detect nitrate leaks into surface water.
