1.In- house developed array of water quality sensors and auto sampler.

2.Design and development of stable autonomous stationary platforms.

3.Wireless signal transmission system between the robots and the platform and the local workstation.

4.Versatile energy harvesting system in modular form for extracting energy from vortex induced vibration as well as solar energy.

5.Real-time data transmission.

6.Design, development and maintenance of a web portal where the collected data will be available to general public and the research community. 

Design

  • Robust
  • Stable in high wind/river currents. (Stability calculations shown in the following slide)
  • Lightweight, so it can be easily maneuverable.
  • Arrangement included for attachment of mooring chains with a sinker or anchor.
  • Energy Harvesting

    The Energy system are being incorporated to sub-limit the energy requirements of the electrical instruments being assembled.

    Wireless

  • Long Range (min. 3-4 km)
  • Low Power or equivalently Low Data Rate
  • Low Cost
  • Works in de-licensed band
  • Open-source Ecosystem
  • Stability

    Buoy to be built after doing Hydrodynamic stability analysis.
