Marine scientists have deployed experiments at the Cal Poly Pier to study various parameters. A major problem with having these remote experiments is that scientists do not know if the experiment is functioning properly or if sensors stop working. The only way to check is to physically visit the deployment site. The goal of this project is to design and implement a remote monitoring system for equipment that is located at the Cal Poly Pier. This system will focus on monitoring the vital components of the system, specifically the voltage and current being supplied by the solar panel, the voltage of the battery, and the current that is being drawn by the experiments. This data will be sent to a web server and will be accessible through a website that will graph the data and send notifications should the data be outside its typical values.
