Within the framework of Industry 4.0, we have developed a sensor platform for industrial environments, conceived as an autonomous node for data collection and its subsequent radio transmission to a central server.
Supports the installation of a large number of sensors simultaneously, allowing detailed characterizations in environments or measurements, data collection and processing.
As a use case, a watertight buoy is presented for taking temperatures at four different depths, in order to characterize the thermocline of a maritime facility. Additionally, a turbidity sensor is installed to detect changes in water quality.
Temperature and turbidity measurements are made at regular time intervals, which are transmitted by radio, together with the battery voltage measurement, to a receiver that sends the data to a server for storage, processing and visualization.
