Monitoring the underwater archeological parks now is easier with the cabel-free system powered by AI algorithms.
Water is extremely challenging environment for technology. Underwater conditions are specific and signals are distorted due to changing water temperature, waves, salinity and other factors.
To monitor underwater archaeological parks a group of developers has created
“a network of acoustic modems and underwater wireless sensors capable of gathering environmental data and transmitting it to land in real time.“
The system is powered by AI algorithms that enable to transmit collected data efficiently in changing sea conditions by modifying the information path node by node. The technology is the same that dolphins and whales use.
The network helps researchers to monitor constantly the underwater conditions, prevent growth of different microorganisms harmful for submerged ruins and track divers.
In the nearest future all visitors of the underwater archaeological parks will be provided with waterproof smart tablets to communicate while diving and to view 3D reconstructions of the ruins via augmented reality.
“Underwater internet has made monitoring of the archaeological site simpler and more efficient,” says Davidde. “At the same time, we can offer the public a new, interactive way to explore the underwater park of Baiae.”
WSense’s technologies are at the forefront of underwater wireless networking, enabling multi-modal secure wireless communications and networking among submerged and surface sensing and robotic platforms.
