Vodafone has joined forces with the U.K. Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs and Forest Research, the country’s principal organization for forestry and tree-related research, to study the role of trees in addressing climate change.
Sensors using Vodafone's Internet of Things (IoT) technology will be attached to trees for three months, during which they will send data continually on temperature, humidity, tree growth, and soil moisture back to scientists.
The IoT technology will enable researchers to monitor areas of the forest generally inaccessible or too costly to reach.
The goal is to learn more about how a tree's ability to store carbon can be used to mitigate climate change.
