Water Monitoring using Flocks of Flying Robots

This project aims at developing an automated system for water sampling along the coast of Nova Scotia using a swarm of flying robots. Currently, water is sampled by hand by teams of 2-5 people each on a number of boats, that must regularly travel to different sites, collect samples, and bring them to land for analysis. This task is slow and costly and exposes people to the inevitable dangers of the ocean. We propose to use a swarm of flying robots developed by Spiri Robotics to take off from a set of pre-determined base stations along the coast, collect samples at target locations, and bring them back to the robots’ base stati
