EasyCurrents Campaign

OceanDrivers has successfully accomplished EasyCurrents R+D+i campaign regarding real-time current measurements. Four EasyCurrents prototype buoys have undertaken several tests, regarding both functionality and precision, and have excelled in every aspect:

  • Easy handling and simple operative and functionality have been verified.
  • Buoy ranges have proved to be up to 100m.
  • Current measurements have been used in order to locate other floating buoys (with a 2-hour time lapse).
  • Results will be compared to those obtained by an existing current radar, aiming to be successfully matched.
  • Software has been proved to be user-friendly and very easy to manage.

In all, the campaign has been very useful in order to progress with the project, which will hopefully be released very soon.
