In order to solve the problems of difficult wiring, poor flexibility, and high cost in aquaculture water quality monitoring, an unmanned water quality monitoring cruise ship with water quality monitoring device was built. The ship navigated automatically on the surface of the water according to the set course and collected water quality data during the voyage, which saved a lot of resources in this innovative way. There are two modes of operation for cruise ships: manual mode and autopilot mode. In the manual mode, the user can realize the manual operation of the ship through the remote controller and can set the autopilot path of the cruise ship. In the autopilot mode, the cruise ship moves automatically according to the preset path.
