The purpose of this project is to design an Autonomous Acoustic Buoy (AAB) for the Laboratori d’Aplicacions Bioacústiques (LAB) and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC). The project is composed of five sub-projects: the Marketing Project, the Mechanical Design Project, the Electronics Project, the Computer Science Project, and the Wireless Communication and Power Supply Project. The Marketing Project created a leaflet for the AAB. The Mechanical Design Project has modelled the buoy using a computer aided design program. The Electronic Project has designed a programmable filtering circuit. The Computer Science Project has developed software for a single board computer called: the Hercules Board. The Wireless Communication and Power Supply Project has examined wireless communication and power supply solutions. All of the work done for the AAB Project is presented in this report and is addressed to both the LAB and the UPC.
