Data Communication for Underwater Sensor Networks

22 March 2013

Veronika Yordanova

Networked sensors have the advantage of collaboratively exploring an area of interest. This would be beneficial for underwater applications such as real time surveillance and exploration, which are impractical with the current state of technology. However, there are some fundamental limits and challenges for enabling a robust and efficient deployment of such networks. One of them is the data transfer between nodes of the network. This project aims to explore novel approaches to improving channel characteristics in underwater communications, with a view to implementing, and testing the measurable underwater performance of the system.
