ERA (Enabling Remote Activity) is an Open University project that supports remote participation by students in fields studies trips. Using a wireless network, digital stills and video cameras and two way audio communications, students are enabled to gather data and otherwise interact with colleagues in remote locations.
The project has supported Earth Sciences summer schools in 2006 (Kindrogan) - 2007 (Heath and Reach), providing local network access and internet connectivity to the field. Future summer school support is planned for 2008.
This website will tell you about the project, the equipment we've used, and introduces the team.
