The DAMP* project, led by two research scientists from IMEP-LaHC, was accepted by incubator Linksium in December, and will receive €180,000 in support. The purpose of the project is to develop a probe built on commercially-available sensors to characterize the humidity, salinity, and conductivity of liquid and solid environments. The probe will have to be robust, easy to use, and suitable for both types of environments. The goal is to create a functional prototype and, ultimately, a startup.
R&D will focus mainly on processing and transmitting the signals recorded by the probe. The team plans to target three applications: snow-cover testing (depth and density) to forecast dam fill levels; smart irrigation systems for farms; and building and infrastructure humidity monitoring.
