Vessels

Sofian writes:

Vessels is an outdoor robotic installation consisting of groups of nocturnal autonomous water vehicles. Their collective, emergent behaviour signifies unseen characteristics of their immediate environment.

During the day, the vehicles remain inactive as they gather and store radiant energy from the sun. At night, they become active upon when they collect, store and interpret data from various environmental conditions such as water quality, air quality, temperature, ambient light, and sound.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. These are cool and all, however, I am interested in how they function and collect information about water quality, air quality, temperature, etc… more as a research device. The video, though cool, shows some fans and color LED’s. I can find these anywhere on the web. _details_ please! I would like to build something like this that is practical and could be used in an environment with a lot of rivers/streams/lakes, etc… to, in-real-time, report on environmental water conditions.
