Nowadays we know that water pollution is very much common in Bangladesh. Waste from industries and rubbish dumping are two of the major sources. This causes much harm to farmers in their marine agriculture since it very largely hampers the quality of water and affects fishes. This is a very serious issue and need to be solved. Our focus is on rural areas. We chose this because fish farming is mainly popular in villages. Our team aims to solve these problems by building a rover which will help test the quality of water and detect water pollution. We will do so my measuring the pH level and the Temperature. This will determine the acidity or alkalinity of the water, and the availability of salts underwater. By sensing this we will get different readings of pollution in different areas. Thus we will know which areas are good for what type of marine farming. By this we can make awareness of the problem which will help reduce pollution in the future. The task that we endeavor to accomplish is not an easy one. The robot must be capable of covering long distances withstand water currents and other underwater barriers like drifting objects and marine life interactions. Maintaining a steady connection with the satellite and synchronizing with the host server is also challenging. Our mission will have a significant impact on the fishing industry. Farmers will know where to fish, and what type of fishes they should agriculture and in what areas. Fishes will be chemical free and hence the people consuming it will also be not affected.
