At land and at sea
Apart from just perserving the environment while out at sea, a similar concept can be applied to a land vehicle. This way, we will get to be as environmentally-friendly as we can be regardless of our location. The main aim is to stay as green as we can be especially when a large volume of work needs to be performed.

Re: 3G?
Quote... "The original plan was to use a satellite modem (using the (sic) Idridium network) to send infrequent (hourly) position reports, and check for mission updates. However, this idea was exchanged for a 3G modem designed for remote access to RS232-based equipment." ....??

Re: 3G?
Just read the article and it says satellite modem, not 3G modem.

3G?
Nice project.  But if it was using a 3G modem, how did it communicate in the middle of the Pacific ocean?  Not too many cell towers out there.....

Was the boat retrieved, and if so what had been the points of failure?  Mechanical, or water getting into the electronics?

An interesting approach to use in wearable systems is related to energy harvesting technology by generating small electric currents by exploiting thermal energy as the difference between two temperatures, that of the body and that of the external environment.
An emerging issue in the computing industry over the last several years is the bandwidth gap between the major communication interfaces (PCIe, Ethernet, USB, etc.), and the external memory interfaces (typically DDR3/4).
The triboelectric effect is defined as a small amount of static electricity generated by the contact and movement of surfaces, used to generate energy that is collected and stored to power sensors and electronics at very low power
The utilization of electronics in medical applications could effectively enhance the quality of life of patients and prevent many cardiovascular distresses: this is confirmed by the result of an observational study, about the CPAP device
This blog series deals with the potential of the utilization of smart electronic ICs in medical care applications; these ICs are produced by companies in the field of semiconductors such as STMicroelectronics which has a broad portfolio of ICs for medical applications
