I was a part of a team of 16 undergraduate engineering students from Cal Poly that designed, built, and tested a solar powered marine monitoring system. This system is designed to monitor boating activities within a Marine Protected Area off the coast of Piers Blancas, California. The system uses a radar and camera along with AIS to track and capture boats on camera. Our project worked in collaboration with Protected Seas and runs off of their software. Our system is able to provide coast keepers with realtime data that they are able to use for law enforcement and planning.
