The Geo4Sight platform is a wireless system for subsurface monitoring in challenging geotechnical environments where the use of cabled monitoring systems is impossible, or where cables are at high risk of being damaged by moving ground.
Geo4Sight uses a wireless mesh network consisting of rugged battery-powered Nodes to communicate sensor data from deep in the ground to the surface. Geo4Sight Nodes are installed into drill holes at regular intervals to enable data communication along the chain of Geo4Sight nodes. The Geo4Sight platform was conceived to integrate a range of sensors. Tilt and pore pressure sensing are the first solutions that are available.
