Scientists successfully test first underwater internet ‘Aqua-Fi’
Like Wi-Fi, it has been dubbed ‘Aqua-Fi’, which allows divers to exchange video and data directly from the depths of the water, but the process used LEDs and lasers.
This work has been finished by specialists from the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology in Saudi Arabia, the subtleties of which have been distributed in the most recent issue of IEEE.
During the time spent aqua fi, radio waves are sent to the diver’s cell phone and a raspberry pie is associated with the computer behind it.
The raspberry pie accordingly goes about as a portal and sends information from a similar PC to the outside of the water as a beam of light.
Here a device is taking over the internet via satellite which works just like a Wi-Fi booster.
Although sound and radio can be connected underwater, they have their own limitations. Light can carry large amounts of data even underwater. For this reason, the benefits of Aqua-Fi are innumerable.
In the process, radio waves travel from the underwater person’s smartphone to the gateway computer behind him. This data is now converted into green LED light and transmitted to another computer on the surface, which is equipped with a light detection system. It should be noted that the first computer converts video and images into another zero series.
Experts have experimentally exchanged more than 2 megabytes per second of data with EcoFi.
