In order to investigate the sediment transportation in rivers, lakes, and oceans, it is important to measure the turbidity and the amount of suspended sediment in a particular body of water. Therefore, in this study, the AA. attempted to develop a measuring device using low-cost mass-produced instruments that are mainly used for FA (factory automation). Among the methods that have been proposed, the optical method (including the transmitted light and scattered light methods) is the easiest to handle using general-purpose sensors. First, the transmitted light and the scattered light methods carried out using FA instruments are discussed. Second, the examination of the sensors by using an experimental channel is described
