How IBM is using smart sensors and computer modeling at Lake George, NY

Jefferson Project, Lake George, NY

IoT-based sensors are being used at Lake George, in New York, in order to collect data that can be used to improve the freshwater ecosystem.

IBM Research is working with partners from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and The Fund for Lake George to place IoT-based sensors around Lake George, in New York, in order to monitor threats such as pollution from road salt, invasive species and excess nutrients.

The Jefferson Project began in 2013, and it includes a smart sensor network that gathers more than 9 terabytes of data annually, and it also uses computer modeling to better understand freshwater ecosystems, and provide science-based insights.
