The COMMON SENSE (CS) project is a European commission funded project under the FP-7 Frame-work. The aim of this project is to implement EU marine policies i.e. Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) and the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP).
For this purpose, the scope of work under the CS project ranges from development of cost-effective, multi-functional, novel sensors and sensor-acquisition system to the complete sensor data analysis and interpolation for in-situ measurement of the marine environment. The core project research is based on the eutrophication, micro-plastic, underwater noise, temperature, pressure, concentration of heavy metals, pH and pCO2 sensor development, data acquisition system and deployment.
Moreover, the CS project will also focus on the availability of all above mentioned sensor analytical and process data and observations over a Common Sensor Web Platform (CSWP). Tyndall National Institute is working together with 15 partners from seven different countries, encompassing a wide range of technical expertise and know-how in the marine monitoring area.
The role of Tyndall is to propose the overall Smart Sensor Integration Architecture and also the design and development of interface electronics for integration of a wide range of sensors. The use of in-situ new generation CSP sensor system in different marine platforms would be indispensable in order to reduce sampling time and monitoring costs.
