Abstract

Sensor networks can detect and communicate information regarding the ambient environment using wireless and real-time methods. Consequently, sensor node design is of critical importance for monitoring water quality. This paper describes the design, fabrication and implementation process of a 3D-printed sensory ball that can remotely collect water flow parameters in real-time. A sensory ball that is 10-cm in diameter was used to measure water flow parameters. Data was then captured in real time and sent to a personal computer via wireless communications. Discussions regarding alternative applications of this device are provided in this manuscript.
