eResearch SensorQ Turbidity monitor

We have developed SensorQ, a unique, end-to-end water monitoring and analysis network in conjunction with industry leaders Taggle Systems and CoastalCOMS. Through a partnership with the Townsville City Council, the devices have been deployed to local waterways and storm water drains.

SensorQ is a low-cost network system that collects real time information about water turbidity, pH and oxygen levels, electrical conductivity, temperature, light, wind and currents. Our sensor buoys are built to withstand harsh Australian weather conditions and collect round-the-clock data. This information is fed into a visualisation system, allowing Council water management staff to see and quickly react to changes in water quality. SensorQ, as an integrated data collection, storage, analysis and visualisation platform, has a variety of industry applications, enabling Queensland to more effectively participate in the Big Data economy.
