Abstract/Artist Statement

Our project is to build a portable wind power generation unit. The application of this generator is to power a network of sensors deployed to collect data in the field. The assembly must be on a moveable platform to self-align itself with the wind, and transmit data wirelessly to a laptop for data collection. The device powers itself and chargs a backup battery for operation on low wind days. The generation unit must be able to stand outdoor conditions for continual operation in all weather conditions.
