In September 2022, the first “Rapid Deployment” of 2 Wild Waggle Nodes were deployed at the University of Utah’s Taft-Nicholson Center in rural Montana. This was the first deployment making use of the ARE Telecom ballasted foundation towers and Starlink uplink, showcasing how Sage node’s can be deployed to the edge in under 24 hours. […]
In April 2022, 4 Sage nodes (3 Wild Waggle Nodes and 1 Waggle Blade Node) were deployed with an array of sensors (thermographic camera, air quality sensor, etc.) to collect data to better our understanding of smoke and wildfire detection. Thermal imaging was used to understand how air temperature can be used to detect smoke […]
Hi, I am Pratool Bharti, an assistant professor in Computer Science department at Northern Illinois University (NIU). Before joining NIU, I worked for 2 years in a Florida based startup as a research and development manager. There, my role was to design and build computer vision and machine learning based yard management system that automatically […]
For five days last July, fourteen high school students attended a virtual coding camp sponsored by Argonne National Laboratory’s Educational Programs and Outreach and the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF), co-taught by laboratory scientists and informal learning educators, and focused on learning techniques for probing and analyzing massive scientific datasets. And while the COVID-19 pandemic […]
Scott Collis, one of the leaders of the SAGE project was on local public television August 12th to discuss the devastating derecho storms that hit the Chicago area. You can catch the story here: Aug-11-PBS Scott’s explanation of the storm start at about minute 19:00
Scott Collis and Jim Olds have been exploring how software-defined radios could be used to improved lightning detection. They have been tinkering at home with several technologies and their hackery was picked up by a few websites: Analyzing Lightning Discharges with an RTL-SDR and the Sage Network Lightning Analysis With Your SDR
A virtual workshop about the Sage project described the possibilities of the project and the current endeavors. The agenda of the workshop is also linked here.
An article from Northwestern University about the relationship between the Sage project and the university though the Northwestern-Argonne Institute of Science and Engineering. The project seeks to deploy nodes to collect real time data to used for research across the country.
An interview with Pete Beckman, Rajesh Sankaran, Nicola Ferrier, and Charlie Catlett about the Array of Things focusing on the background of the project as well as the future applications of the data for other projects.
A summary of the Sage Workshop that took place in April 2019. It brought together scientists to discuss the state of the technology of Sage and look at possibilities for new research and technology opportunities.
