How many sensors/mesh gateways/border gateways are needed to cover a forest?

Different forests and terrains require different solutions. Fewer sensors are required in lower risk

areas such as remote locations. Nearer to infrastructure and areas of human activity (such as

roads, campsites and railways), a denser deployment of sensors, mesh gateways and border

gateways will be required.

As a rule of thumb, 0.7 sensors are required per hectare in higher risk areas, and 0.1 sensors

per hectare where there’s lower risk. Overall, this amounts to an average of 0.2 sensors

required per hectare for a typical forest location.
