Abstract

Wave buoys are widely used to collect ocean data for sea state estimate. several applications such as forecast of weather conditions. To achieve that goal, the industry standard buoys are usually large and expansive as the CAMERI buoy, recently placed at the Haifa bay area. In this paper, we present a newly designed small-size, low-cost autonomous wave buoy equipped with inertial sensors and the ability to log their measurements for offline sea state estimation. A comparison of the estimated sea-state conditions is made between the proposed low-cost compact buoy to the high-end CAMERI buoy using sea experiments conducted at the Haifa bay area. It is to shown that a low-cost buoy can serve as a local, short-Term deployable data collection unit for various applications.
