Abstract

Collecting environmental data in shallow water areas can be a challenging task. Difficulties include covering large territories and the presence of inaccessible areas due to a variety of reasons such as a soft bottom or contamination. There is also a high chance of disturbing the test area while placing the sensors. This paper describes the design and development of a remotely-operated system that transmits data wirelessly to a computer on shore in real-time. The paper also presents and discusses test results and addresses future plans.
