biophony sensor housing system
outerspace designers collaborated with procept to develop a protective housing system for electronic sensors that monitor the health and biodiversity of an environment using high definition acoustics.
The sensors capture and process audio information emitted from insects and birds in orchards, and transmit data wirelessly to a network gateway.
We designed a housing system that protects the sensitive electronic equipment and withstands the damaging effects of extremes in weather, ultra violet light, water ingress and insect invasion.
We made it user friendly and easy to install and operate by technicians working in the field.
We developed a cradle design for the system, to make it reliable and easy to mount onto a tree or pole in an orchard or farming property.
We engineered the case for low volume production and detailed the design to accommodate and protect the electronics safely and effectively in the field.
