Low cost buoy for monitoring recreational areas
Rights accessOpen Access
By using buoy-based coastal monitoring systems we can build innovative solutions addressed to measure, among other activities, the marine cosastal conditions. This technology is continuously evolving mainly because the current high-cost of the buoy-based installations jepoardizes the full penetration of these products and their potential added-value applications in the consumer market. To mitigate these shortcomings, we propose a Samrt System for Marine Environments . This is a novel concept to monitor coastal areas: a low-cost, light weight, energy-efficient and surface buoy-based system to dedicate all the efforts in satisfying the demand of a wide variety of end-users and applications.
