Summary: IEEE SENSORS JOURNAL, VOL. 11, NO. 1, JANUARY 2011 45
A Robust, Adaptive, Solar-Powered WSN Framework
for Aquatic Environmental Monitoring
Cesare Alippi, Fellow, IEEE, Romolo Camplani, Cristian Galperti, and Manuel Roveri
Abstract--The paper proposes an environmental monitoring
framework based on a wireless sensor network technology char-
acterized by energy harvesting, robustness with respect to a large
class of perturbations and real-time adaptation to the network
topology. The fully designed and developed ad hoc system, based
on clusters relying on a star topology, encompasses a sensing
activity, a one-step local transmission from sensor nodes to the
gateway, a remote data transmission from the gateway to the
control center, data storage in a DB and real-time visualization.
Hw and Sw modules have been either carefully selected or de-
signed to guarantee a high quality of service, optimal solar energy
harvesting, storage and energy awareness. A monitoring system
integrating the outlined framework has been deployed in Queens-
land, Australia, for monitoring the underwater luminosity and
temperature, information necessary to derive the health status of
the coralline barrier. At the same time, acquired data can be used
