Arch Rock’s Sensor Net

C|Net has news of a start-up called Arch Rock that is working on something of interest to those following blogjects/spimes/kirkyans. From the C|Net article (Link):

Arch Rock is one of several companies seeking to sell systems used to build and operate networks of wireless sensors that connect to the Internet.

For example, a bridge can be outfitted with sensors to monitor vibrations that may indicate structural damage, or vineyards can use sensors for monitoring temperature and moisture, allowing them to better plan harvests.

Connections to the Internet can be established by using “mesh networks” that can create ad hoc networks without a single access point, he added.

I’m planning on finding some time to work on another concept, so this is interesting news to me.
