RP11: Water Quality monitoring and Sensor deployment using UWRs (ESR11, EVO)
As new requirements for remote sensing emerge, there is need to develop multisensory systems to simultaneously measure multiple parameters as well as explore new deployment strategies, whereby sensors can detect the pollutant around many areas of water reservoirs. The pollutant concentrations vary in different areas of water body. Hence, a simultaneous measurement of quality of water in different depths is very important. This project will develop intelligent algorithms for moving the sensors-laden UWRs to different areas of waterbody to map the hydrochemical properties. The real-time date from multisensory system used in these algorithms will guide the UWR towards a pocket of desired water quality. For continuous long-term monitoring of water in the area identified by UWRs, we will install sensorized buoys.
