The Floating Sensor Network is a platform of up to 100 motorized sensor drifters that are communication-enabled to transmit through the cellular and the radio network, equipped with GPS, temperature, flow rate, salinity, and contaminant sensors information across an expansive flow of water. Each drifter is a cylinder 5" in diameter and 17" tall that floats on its vertical axis and communicates via cell phone and short-range radio.
