The paper Implementation of Soil Moisture Profile Probe Driven by Soil Temperature Difference (in Japanese) won Best Paper Award (top 4 papers out of 258 nominations) and Presentation Award (26 papers out of 258 nominations) in Multimedia, Distributed, Cooperative, and Mobile Symposium 2018 by IPSJ.

We propose a battery-less soil moisture profile probe driven by the temperature differences between the near-surface air and the underground soil (the depth is 30 cm). While solar panels are commonly used in the agricultural field, they are not usable in areas receiving little sunshine. Our proposal can be applied to those situations where the environmental sensors are covered with vegetation, trees, and so on. Through simulation using temperature data of actual fields and experimental implementation, we showed the feasibility of our proposal.

I was able to win the prize with everyone's help. I will continue to do my best.
