Pilots get tips from smart buoys

The website provides data from the inshore weather buoy that was deployed in the waters off Herring Cove in November of last year.
Monitoring and reporting wave action is one of the smart buoy’s jobs. If a storm is approaching, the smart buoy will know, and so will visitors to the website.
Completion of the website puts a public face on a complex research and operational undertaking designed to keep mariners safe.
