Paper Abstract

There are many relationships between ocean and human life, and it's vital for our survival and development. Ocean observation is of great importance because it enables the prediction of specific global atmospheric changes. And ocean buoy is the core of marine monitoring system. In this paper, we propose a new method based on principle of electromagnetic induction coupling to realize non-contact signal transmission and power feeding for underwater sensors through mooring cable. Sufficient power feeding and data transmission are confirmed by experiments. It can be expected that the proposed system allows easier attachment and detachment of sensors to mooring wires and finally leads to miniaturization of the whole sensor body due to battery-free sensor operation.
