This communication presents Hidroboya™, a buoy that is already working on the sea and whose purpose is being an autonomous source of ocean and continental water data that will be automatically sent to an “on land” server which organizes them in a database system. Server can handle information from several buoys and authorized users can see and browse data over the internet. Furthermore, buoy sensing design is very innovative, because it keeps sensors dry the most of the time and uses a hydraulic system to feed fresh ocean water to them when required. This design keeps sensors free from sea particles sedimentation, problem known as “fouling”.
