Title: "Smart" Turbidimeters for Remote Monitoring of Water Quality

Cornell University and Johns Hopkins University’s Water Quality team has designed a low-cost monitor for measuring water quality. Monitors for testing water quality can be very expensive for communities in developing countries with small water treatment systems. The team’s low-cost device measures the turbidity, or "cloudiness", caused by particles of dirt at potentially dangerous levels. Sampling data can be transmitted by mobile phone to an online system that records the information and tracks water quality of rivers, wells and treatment plants in real time.
