Indigo V is an oceanic research team that recently completed a journey across the Indian Ocean. Over a span of six months, they traveled all the way from Cape Town to Singapore.
As they made their way across the ocean, the researchers used XBee and a Seeed Studio Arduino Board to relay the data collected by sensors near the water to a computer within the cabin. Russell Neches built the instrument to measure pH, water quality, temperature, and conductivity.
