Design of an Internet of Things Module for Continuous Water Quality Monitoring

Session

Computer Science and Communication Engineering

Description

With the development of industry and the growth of the human population on earth, the environment is becoming more and more polluted and the drinking water is becoming a more constraint resource. Conventional water quality monitoring systems have been based on periodical sampling at predetermined positions. Afterwards, these samples are manually transported to the labs for the quality analyses. This method, however, does not match the today’s spatiotemporal dynamics of the water quality variability. Therefore, the development of the systems for automatic continuous real time monitoring is of crucial importance. This paper focuses on the design of a system for continuous monitoring of the most important water quality indicators such as pH value, turbidity, and temperature. The incorporated GPRS transceiver enables for the remote data view and storage. The system was tested under the realistic conditions. The results show high system accuracy and reliability, and enables for the stakeholders to test water quality at particular sites continuously.
