A Low-cost Wireless Water Quality Auto-monitoring System
The water quality monitoring plays an important role in water contamination surveillance and guides the water resource protection for safe and clean water. A flexible automated real-time water quality monitoring and alarm system based on the wireless sensor network(WSN) is proposed. The WSN is built in accordance with Zigbee communication protocol, which consists of the sensor nodes, route nodes and coordinator node. The sensor nodes based on cheap and efficient sensors (pH electrode, dissolved oxygen electrode, temperature senor) and wireless transreceiver collect the environmental data and transmit to the coordinator node via the route nodes. The data are sent to the remote monitoring center with the help of GPRS. The time synchronous algorithm is adopted to wake up all the nodes in the network to improve the stability and reliability of the communication. The long-time measurement results verify the real time and accuracy in data acquisition and stability and reliability in communication. The system meets the requirements of water quality monitoring, and has great practical value.
