Abstract:This graduation is concerned with the development of a sensor system which is used for long-term registration of the temperature development of different locations in Enschede in order to see if and where urban heat islands come into existence. Urban heat islands are urban areas which are significantly hotter than similar rural areas. Since urban areas are often heavily populated, the high temperatures are a cause of heat stress. The municipality of Enschede is therefore interested in the size and severity of these urban heat islands in Enschede. Previous graduation projects already proved that a sensor system can be developed to register the temperature development in the city of Enschede. However, the sensor system needs to be dependable to some degree for it to operate on a long-term base. The goal of this graduation project is to improve the design of the sensor system, so it is able to operate dependably on a long-term base. The end result of this graduation project is an autonomous sensor system which is able to measure the temperature of the air, the relative humidity and the speed of the wind. The sensor system does so in a dependable way and is able to label the data with a quality mark. The sensor system provides its own power and utilizes a LoRaWAN network to store the gathered data in a database.
