Abstract

SmartCoasts is an INTERREG 4A project aimed at providing novel solutions for real-time monitoring and forecasting of coastal water quality. The intended predictive system relies on freely available online weather forecasts and a suite of real-time meteorological data measured across a river catchment. In a preliminary stage, a prototype has been developed taking the real-time data from GPRS loggers deployed at strategically located stations according to a centralised architecture. Even though such system has proven its suitability providing accurate predictions, certain pitfalls that hamper usability have been detected. Adding intelligent capabilities to the sensing nodes might help to overcome such situation. This paper presents a general overview of the current situation and discusses some of the major challenges and difficulties that need to be faced in order to set up a really smart Environmental Wireless Sensor Network.
