The Development of Visitor Counting System Based on Ubiquitous Sensor Networks in National Park: Case Study of Nogodan Area in Chirisan National Park

유비쿼터스 센서 네트워크 기반 국립공원 탐방객 통행량 계수시스템 개발

  • Published : 2008.01.31


The purpose of this study was to develop the national park visitor counting system using the ubiquitous sensor network. This system is composed of a sensor node, sink node, gateways, CDMA module, server, and clients. The results of the study were: 1) stable data transmission distance was possible within 100 meters between sensor nodes, 2) the developed counting sensor system showed a network communication stability level of 88.3 percent in 1.2m wide trails. When installed in concentrate use areas or forks of national parks, the visitor counting system will not only contribute to provide reliable visitor counting, but also to improve the quality of national park visitor service, to manage park facilities and natural resources more efficiently, to achieve an information oriented national park system.
