Program Code: 1885


This project is part of a larger program to build a low-cost, large-scale, high-capacity underwater sensor network consisting of thousands of nodes. The aim of this project is to develop algorithms for sharing and processing sensor data from large numbers of low-quality sensors. Applications include measurement of environmental data such as ocean currents, and direction finding for underwater transmitters.

Description of Work:

Investigate suitability of distributed processing algorithms for underwater networks

Adapt and improve selected algorithms for the underwater environment

Implement algorithms in a large-scale sensor network.
