CoMonSENSE

Challenge 

The need to detect pollution events in coastal waters is becoming critical in maintaining healthy aquatic ecosystems. Due to their characteristically short durations combined with infrequent sampling, the probability of detecting these events is extremely low and as such they usually go undetected.

Idea to solution

The CoMonSENSE project will develop and demonstrate a complete LoRa-sensor package for the effective detection of coastal pollution events, where information is gathered at a sensing platform, communicated to the network server and from there sent to a specific applications server – all in an automated and wireless manner. The system will be based on a LoRaWAN protocol and developed in collaboration with Aalborg University Copenhagen (AAU), before being demonstrated along Danish coastline.
