Measuring Device
Why monitor river?
Rivers are monitored for:

The safety of living organisms using it

Knowing the biological parameters that


are needed to ensure the quality of the
water
Current Methods
National
Sensing Environmental

Parameters through
Telemetry (SENTRY)

Mataasnakahoy,

Batangas Philippines

LUZON

CHICO
RIVER
NSRU
Current method requires:
Several faculty members
Long trip to the river
Taking samples at the river
Transporting the samples back to
the laboratory
NSRU

"Physico-chemical and Biotic


Characterization of the Sabangan-
Tocucan Stretch of the Chico River
System.
Status of proposal: shelved
Why shelved?
Objective
TO DESIGN AND CONSTRUCT A DEVICE
THAT WILL HELP NSRU TO REMOTELY
MONITOR THE WATER QUALITY OF
THE CHICO RIVER.
Statement
of the
Problem
What are the requirements for
the construction of the project
in terms of:

>Hardware >Software
How will the different
components of the device be
interfaced?
How will the microcontroller be
programmed to:

convert sensor readings to equivalent


water parameter values

instruct the transmitter to transmit water


parameter values
How will the device be
evaluated in terms of
functionality?
