The project

"Open design of a fixed probe for water quality monitoring in rivers and lakes" is the bachelor project of an EPFL student Nils Bonfils which is done within the Biodesign project and supervised by Robin Scheibler. The goal is to set a fixed measurement station on Sorge river at EPFL. It will collect different water-related and environment-related data and then send them through the internet to a server to be stored there, and then maybe displayed with a web interface. The core of the project has changed now to be a raspberry pi over an arduino because the gsm shield (for arduino) is more expensive than a simple usb 3G dongle and because the arduino camera needed to much pin to work it would have been required to have 2 arduinos to handle everything as a raspery can run a simple webcam through usb.

Parameters Measured

These are the parameters that will be mesured by the station.

Other parameters related to water

These are parameters related to the project that will not be measured for simplicity sake, but it could be interresting to have them on an upgrade of the project (bigger station, needs to measure other things).

Battery and power management

  • RPi shield that can schedule shutdown and wakeup Witty Pi
