AUV-RM: Underwater Sensor Network Scheme for AUV Based River Monitoring

Abstract

As over 70 percent of the earth’s surface is covered by water, it is desirable to deploy underwater sensor networks to support river monitoring research applications. Underwater Acoustic Sensor Networks use acoustic waves and are characterized by long and variable propagation delays, intermittent connectivity, limited bandwidth and low bit rates. Within this research we propose a framework with a custom protocol stack for river monitoring. Proposed framework perfectly fits into the latest notion of Internet of Underwater Things architecture and in future can be utilized not only for the shallow river monitoring but also in such extended applications as pipeline surveillance, harbour security and fish farms monitoring.
