- Benjamin Spak – Front End, UI --GitHub
- Mitigate bio-matter from entering water ways.
- Capture NPK (Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium) readings & send to reporting dashboard.
- Monitor Baffle Box contents & report when it needs to be emptied.
- Empower biologists with additional data that may one day lead to accurate bloom prediction.
- Savings - Less manpower for labor intensive sampling
- Keep people healthy - protect against disease clusters -- Alzheimer's - BMAA (NueroToxin) - & liver damage primarily.
- Where to locate the baffle box's for maximum effectiveness?
- A centralized location for neighborhood storm drains.
Power - Solar:
- How much power do we need to operate the sensors?
- Input 10.5 ... 18 VDC (HC-PO4)
- Current draw 3.0 A max; 115 mA avg (HC-PO4)
Communication - LTE:
- Who's our service provider?
- Who can we partner with to use their data?
Data Collection, Reporting & Storage:
- How often do we sample NPK readings?
- Every 30 Minutes
- How often do we sync & report NPK readings?
- Immediately after samples are analysed.
- How much local storage do we need?
- 1 GB (HC-PO4)
Time to Failure:
- How often will sensors need to be replaced?
- 5-month reagent life (HC-PO4)
- How much do new sensors cost?
- Can we buy in bulk @ a discount?
