Smart Atlantic Buoy Redundancy Model

Project Type: Predictive Model
Area/Sector: Marine Operations
Company/Partner: Institute for Ocean Research Enterprise (IORE)
Academic Institution: Dalhousie University
Lead Investigator: Dr. Luis Torgo
HQP: Jesuseyi Fasuyi

This project will result in a prediction of sea conditions at a given location based on measurements from meteorlogic and oceanographic ‘smart’ buoys in the general area.

The motivation is to provide redundancy in the measurement of sea conditions for safe navigation within the Halifax Harbour when the main smart buoy in Halifax Harbour fails or is unavailable.a
