Sorry about the lack of details.
This project is still in early development, I'm in my third year of electrical engineering, I've done some projects in ESP32 and Arduino, and general projects with Python and Machine Learning. I've done some projects with basic hardware (in the basic Arduino starter kit) but this project is a huge jump to me.
This project is part of a Bootcamp Program, and I am not expecting to finish the project in the meantime (we were given only 1 month of work), but the least I could do is making a research and explaining what steps, programs, and hardware I would use to solve the project if there were time and money available.
The project itself is to deploy a microphone sensor network in the forest to detect chainsaw sounds. I've done the basic prototyping using Analog Microphone, Generic ESP32 board, and SD card reader to record and send .wav file to my laptop using MQTT.
My next goal is to plan the real-life deployment situation, including choosing the microphone used.
