Wateristic: an underwater bioluminescence detector
Lead image "La Jolla and the Blue Waves" by Kevin Baird is licensed under CC BY-NC-ND 2.0
I'm working on this in New Orleans. Maritime shipping is a huge industry here and we're hoping that this sensor can make it safer. This can be used by boaters in these locations:
- Mississippi River
- Lake Ponchatrain
- Gulf of Mexico
Goals and Motivations
Our goal is to make a underwater sensor that can detect bioluminescence. Concerned about safety of shipping and want to develop an interesting way to view the ocean.
People who are involved
@omarion, @jguillen055_stu, @mimiss, and @amallozzi are working on this
What are we working on now:
We are just getting started. We're working to develop a sensor. First steps include: - Decide parts - Develop code - Build it - Create a way to test it
