Google made some changes and we are fixing.
Particle Identification In Camera Image Sensors Using Computer Vision, Astroparticle Physics, Volume 104, January 2019 We present a deep learning, computer vision algorithm constructed for the purposes of identifying and classifying charged particles in camera image sensors. … The particle detector in your pocket: The Distributed Electronic Cosmic-ray Observatory, IRC 2017, Busan Korea The total […]
There is, and has been, a lot going on — including published papers; grants received; and new development. We’re in the process of updating the details and documentation for all of this. Some of it is already online. Please be patient. We tend to prioritize development over publishing news updates. Please check out some of […]
Sensorcast has been invited to be a poster presenter at the DARPA/UCI Workshop on Mobile and Intelligent Sensor Networks on February 8th, 2016. This is organized by the UC Irvine Office of Research. From the announcement: “Sensor networks are crucial for collecting data and understanding the physical world. This workshop will explore fundamental challenges in […]
The DECO team at the Wisconsin IceCube Particle Astrophysics Center (WIPAC) has published a second paper entitled Measurement of camera image sensor depletion thickness with cosmic rays. This paper was accepted by the Journal of Instrumentation. The full text of the paper can be found here. The abstract is below: Camera image sensors can be […]
The DECO team at the Wisconsin IceCube Particle Astrophysics Center (WIPAC) has published a paper entitled Detecting particles with cell phones: the Distributed Electronic Cosmic-ray Observatory and is presenting at International Cosmic Ray Conference (ICRC) at The Hague, Netherlands on August 6, 2015 (webpage). The full paper can be found here. The abstract is below: […]
We’ve been looking for a simple name for some time that is more concise than Global Sensor Web. To this end we’ve settled on Sensorcast.org. Old GlobalSensorWeb.org links should work for continue to work for some time and redirect to Sensorcast.org. The links for the API, data collection and query server are already converted over.
The John S. and James L Knight Foundation has awarded the Global Sensor Web (GSW) a modest grant to further our efforts. Ariel Levi Simons submitted our proposal via the Wildwood School in LA. Levi has been instrumental in helping us find our 1st sub-project (DECO), and finding some earlier funding for that research. Details […]
As we have discussed in our talks and other blog posts, noise is a large factor in creating events, and we don’t want noise, whether it be thermal, the most common, or magnetic. One of the great things about being able to actually see event images on a computer is that an event created by […]
The “Big” idea behind developing the Global Sensor Web (GSW) is to create a platform for citizen science whereby various research teams can quickly aggregate and analyze data, even from real time sources such as weather stations and air quality monitors. Part of this development work now involves engaging students in helping to lay out what […]
