Next-generation weather reporting: Versatile, flexible, and economical sensors

Have you ever been trapped in an unexpected torrential downpour? Weather forecasting systems have always tried to anticipate adverse weather events. These systems, however, are heavily dependent on bulky, stationary, expensive equipment such as weather radar, impeding timely updates on local weather conditions for personal use. Tackling this gap in knowledge and practicality, a research team from Osaka Metropolitan University and the University of Tokyo developed an attachable and lightweight sensor sheet that features a flexible resistive sensor and a reservoir computing analysis.
