Had my sensor out at syncline today and It was green......good to go until the ground freezes (hopefully no more of that). Didn't see you there today?!?!donutboy said:I keep having this idea that it would be cool to do on some local trails, at different spots along the trail. have 'em update to a website, simplified on a color scale for rideability.
And the sensors report back how?donutboy said:The sensors report back and give a rough idea of what sections are rideable, which are to be avoided, and allow for folks that live an hour or so away the ability to make educated decisions about making the drive to the trail.
You could do that and you could do it with off the shelf gear. Most of the large farms have wireless moisture sensors deployed around them.donutboy said:sorry they would report back via radio or cell.
Most of the sensor/counter doohickeys log the data and store it locally until they get plugged into a PC and then they give it up...mwestra2 said:BTW, KC Parks is planning to install user sensors/counters somewhere along the boardwalk at Duthie and at several other parks. I just assumed they report back by some kinda cell phone doohicky.
