Title: Remote Monitoring of Surface Water Sources to Detect & Warn of Contamination
Author: Balogh, Andy; Butler, Kyle; Minhas, Mohammad; Semechko, Anton
Abstract: This paper outlines the application of technology related to "Remote Asset Monitoring" (RAM), such as "Machine to Machine communication (M2M), to the problem of designing a system for monitoring surface water quality and relaying appropriate warnings to the proper authorities when contamination levels have been breached. The system was implemented using electronic sensors to take continuous readings of contaminant levels in the water to be fed to a microcontroller to process and interpret whether they were acceptable. If not, an appropriate warning message would be sent through a satellite network which would then relay the message to necessary base stations through an internet based website. A milestone of the design was to show that the system is able to detect abnormal levels of contamination related to water quality and report an alarm if they exceeded predefined tolerance levels through use of a simulation using a series of test inputs.
