Studies in the marine environment require devices to gather data in remote locations. These devices commonly use some form of data logging that require the user to retrieve the device after a period of time. This is not only a large effort, but often presents an unnecessary delay and risk in the event that the device malfunctions, goes missing or if the data collected is redundant. We propose a modular, remote and autonomous sensing solution that enables multi-sensor readout and wireless data communication, providing scientists with real time data. This sensor buoy is comprised of a primary module which is a data logger that connects to an online server via mobile network. The secondary portion is the hub that connects to an array of sensors that are customized to the needs of the marine scientists.
