Note

  • Display Note: Abstract: This research report covers the use of a wireless sensor network (WSN) using the ZigBee protocol to remotely monitor an artificial aquatic ecosystem. Field tests were conducted at the University of North Texas Water Research Facility to compare the accuracy of a high-end standard YSI multi probe system to a cost efficient lab developed sensor cluster, which would be used in the classroom to bring more real-world experiences in engineering to students. Measurements were recorded every 10 seconds for pH, dissolved oxygen, and temperature for a period of 24 hours. Comparison results show a 10 percent degree of variability in dissolved oxygen possibly due to the sensitivity of the DO sensors themselves. On the other hand, temperature and pH measured less than a 5 percent error.
