Abstract:
Wireless sensor networks (Akyildiz, 2002) is a low cost and easily deployed technology in hostle environments like the sea. Sensor technology has been used in sea environments, mainly for scientfc purposes, since the equipments were costly, not easily repairable or widely deployable. The idea here is the development of a system consistng of low-cost sensor nodes widely deployed on the sea surface taking advantage of recent developments on areas of networking, solar engineering and sensors of organic polluton, e.g., (Stach, 2018). The sensed data are expected to be efciently collected in terms of energy consumpton (Tsoumanis, 2018), while the sensor bateries are replenished accordingly to prolong the network's lifetme (Kavvadia, 2014). A set of protocols is developed within low-cost devices (e.g., Arduino) in a way that takes into account the partcular environment. It will be tested and evaluated in a close to reality sea surface environment. The focus is on the low-cost requirement, the network lifetme extension and the resilience in the sea environment. The protocol development process will allow for large-scale manufacturing and the subsequent reduced overall cost per node. The main result is that the developed system satsfes the aforementoned requirements (low- cost, widely deployable, prolonged lifetme) and at the same tme adjusts to new technological advancements. For example, in case new sensors emerge in the future, requiring diferent monitoring procedures, the developed system will be able to seamlessly integrate these changes. A low-cost wireless sensor system for monitoring sea polluton at the surface of the Ionian Sea is designed, tested using simulatons and partly developed in a demo environment facing the challenges of being low-cost, prolonging the network lifetme and delivering data within certain tme constraints. Such a tool is a necessity for the Ionian Sea since from the ancient tmes it has been the main sea route between West and East and motvate a large scale project accordingly.
