Abstract

We report an avian influenza surveillance system with wireless sensor nodes with which the activity of chickens can be continuously monitored. Intermittent measurement is effective in decreasing the power consumption of a wireless sensor node. However, the measurement interval must be short enough to obtain accurate data in activity measurement of a chicken. In this case, the power consumption of the node is increased owing to the huge amount of transmission data. In this research, we have developed and characterized a method of detecting an anomalous state of a chicken for the continuous activity monitoring with a small amount of transmission data. The result of the simulation using data from infection experiments indicated that the average detection time was about 8 h before death and the necessary number of transmissions per hour was 33.
