Underwater optical wireless sensor network for real-time underwater environmental monitoring

Abstract

An underwater optical wireless sensor network prototype consisting of two sensor nodes and an optical hub is developed for the first time to implement real-time underwater environmental monitoring in this work. In a laboratory testbed and a field trial conducted in an outdoor diving pool, the sensor nodes can transmit the collected information (temperature, salinity, conductivity and pH) to the base station through the optical hub with 100% packet success rates over a transmission distance of 60 cm. This work is the first step toward the future implementation of real-time underwater mobile sensor networks and the underwater Internet of Things.
