Abstract

Technological advances and pressing management problems have coerced the development of a new mode of riverine monitoring system. Many human benefits derived from the earth™s ecosystems are contingent on knowing the current condition of the said ecosystems, understanding the controls on those systems and identifying stressors that might lead to deterioration in the future. Therefore, a continuous, real-time information on multiple variables is essential and increasingly feasible through new instrumentation and communication. In this CRC research work, a fleet of floating robotics platform is developed that can be deployed at a specific location, allowing them to propagate through the environment with the water currents, and retrieving them at the end of the mission. The retrieval operation is assisted by the device that transmitting its location to the research team.
