Wavy Drifter Buoy

Wavy is a simple and low-cost drifter buoy for river and coast line sea current measurements.
Easily deployable thanks to its size, weight and shape. It is a great solution for operations demanding simple logistics, low budget and multiple reading in same day.

 It is equipped with position sensor and communication. Log and report on its own position, even under rough sea conditions. The outer casing was designed to be resistant to plunging against the rocks. The structure will absorb the impact, keeping the inner electronics intact and able to carry on with its duty.

Depending on the currents, it may be deployed several times in the same day thanks to its long battery life.
Using just a laptop or a mobile phone (WavyHub), it is easy to configure and operate a Wavy System.
