原文如下：AMOS is an autonomous surface vessel (ASV) intended for collecting water quality data of inland coastal areas, lakes, rivers, and streams, or hydrographic surveying.
AMOS (Aquatic Mini Observation System) is a solar-powered robotic boat that can perform water quality measurements at pre-defined GPS locations. Data is stored onboard and can be transmitted via wireless serial link or cellular-based Internet connection.
Solar powered: can run indefinitely in bright sunlight, when sun is greater than 40 degrees above the horizon.
Lightweight: 13 kg, can be carried by single person. Low draught, capable of operating in as little as 2 cm water depth.
Airboat design does not get caught in seaweed or other vegetation.
Low-cost parts make replacement / repair easy and affordable.
Raspberry Pi-based central computer is simple to program and widely documented.
Open-source software and hardware makes customization easier.
Wide variety of connectivity options, including WiFi, Bluetooth, cellular, and wireless serial.
PC, Android, and iOS apps are available for interfacing with and controlling AMOS. Custom software development is available.
AMOS is well-suited to a wide variety of hydrological applications. It comes with a small sensor probe for measuring water temperature. Other sensors can be added for measuring pH, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, chlorophyll, algae, blue green algae, conductivity, salinity, and ammonium concentration. Onboard diagnostic capabilities include a waterproof camera module (up to 3280 x 2464 resolution), LiDAR object detection, inertial measurement unit including triaxial accelerometers, magnetometers, and gyroscopes, atmospheric pressure sensor, humidity & temperature sensors for both electronics enclosures, battery voltage and current monitoring, leak detection sensors, and GPS receiver board.
