The AquaEYE hardware sensors will record and transmit the following data on a defined interval basis using either satellite or GPRS transmission technology to a cloud-based database:

  • GPS once per day
  • Level of dissolved oxygen twice per day.
  • PH Value of water twice per day
  • Temperature of water twice per day
  • Light level twice per day

Space Added Value

The AquaEye product is geared towards aquaculture production facilities. These can be located both on and off shore and in a marine based environment. Through it’s use of satellite and GPRS transmission technologies AquaEYE will enable the data from the sensors installed on the farm to be available to the user in near real time. GPS receivers are used to provide a positive location for the aquafarm.

Current Status

The AquaEYE project commenced in September 2018 and  the initial focus was on gathering and clarifying user requirements for the system. The system was developed and a pilot version of the system was deployed in February 2020. The pilot phase of the project took place from the beginning of March to the start of June 2020 and was completed successfully. The commercial phase of the project will commence in July 2020.
