S.O.S. & DELORis ROBOTS

(Sink or Swim & Deep Lake Observation Reconnaissance Information System)


These projects are to perform data collection using sensors attached to underwater robots that will take readings at various locations in the water column.  

 

DIY SEAPERCH ROBOT SUBMARINE


This is a DIY robot submarine made from PVC pipes.











SeaPerch began as one project in a book entitled "How to Build an Underwater Robot," by Harry Bohm and Vickie Jensen. Professor Thomas Consi at MIT developed a curriculum around the SeaPerch as a way to grow the Ocean Engineering Program at MIT.  The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME) utilized their resources to develop and manage a national program with ONR (Office of Naval Research)as a partner. Through a grant from ONR, SNAME created a program that includes a kit, infrastructure, supporting materials, website, ordering and inventory mechanism, and a network of individuals to help grow the program.

S.O.S. & DELORis ROBOTS

(Sink or Swim & Deep Lake Observation Reconnaissance Information System)


Underwater robots can be used to monitor, perform or assist in performing water quality assessments. Underwater robots can be used to deploy sensor clusters or long term monitoring devices (like data loggers). 

The S.O.S. AND DELORis robots are to perform analysis on surface water and water up and down the water column in bodies of water in the Mahoning County Watersheds.

SURFACE WATER TESTING

We are interested in testing water to determine the presence of HAB (Harmful Algae Blooms). This project is called REHAB (Remote Evaluation of HAB).  The robots will be able to take samples for testings or take readings ui=sig the onboard sensors. Here are a list of sensors we are exploring:

  1. pH

  2. Turbidity

  3. Dissolved Oxygen

  4. Phosphorus (Total, Soluble)

  5. Nitrogen (Nitrate, Nitrite)

  6. Temperature

  7. Suspended Solids

  8. Chloride

  9. Sulfate

  10. Silica

  11. Conductivity

  12. Ammonia


All artifacts and results will be accessible to the public. We are also working with local community organizations.

WHAT ARE HARMFUL ALGAE BLOOMS


HAB occur when colonies of algae—simple photosynthetic organisms that live in the sea and freshwater—grow out of control while producing toxic or harmful effects on people, fish, shellfish, marine mammals, and birds.
