Description: The event of nanocomputer, low cost electronic components, iot, do it youself, open source software and hardware offer great opportunities in water quality monitoring. Teams of students took the challenge to design a low cost water quality monitoring station including a water sampler. The station uses low cost and easily available components. The station uses a BeagleBoneBlack as a nanocomputer and is able to measure in real time water depth (for flow rate), temperature, pH, turbidity, salinity and dissolved oxygen. For water parameters without sensor, the station is equipped with a water sampler made of CNC machine components (rails, stepper motors, servo motors, belts), small pumps and glass jars. The controlling program is written in Python. The cost of components including the housing is less than 4000$ CAN.
