The Project

Collecting water quality data is presently a time-consuming, tedious, and expensive process that this project seeks to advance. The envisioned product is a small-scale solar-powered robotic vehicle that affords autonomous aquatic data collection. Through added mobility, this technology will decrease the number of sensors and amount of manpower needed for data collection in aquatic environments.
