I am an Computer Science Sophomore who is an intern at a small rural water plant facility. I was asked to create a system that would allow remote monitoring of the level of the water tank in a rural water system.
Part of this meant that I would have to put a sensor on the water tank. The tank is nowhere near electrical power, it’s in a cellular dead zone, but is within a quarter mile of the community center’s public WiFi. Because of this, the easiest route to get information from the tank monitor was the public WiFi.
