Student working on a research project.

Development Of A Novel, Low-cost, Underwater Flow Sensor

An undergraduate student researcher will help to develop a novel, low-cost underwater flow probe using off-the-shelf commercial pressure sensors arranged in a multi-hole probe configuration. The researcher will lead the effort to design and build an integrated sensor package including necessary communication electronics. The student researcher will then perform flow sensor calibration and deliver a completed flow sensor package that will be used on an autonomous underwater vehicle.
