Water sampling is a fundamental practice for obtaining essential environmental data, enabling the analysis and quality testing of water from natural or industrial sources. It is vital in understanding water quality changes over time, identifying contaminant sources, and supporting water management plans. Traditional sampling methods, including spot (bottle) sampling and in-situ readings, can be labor-intensive and limited by accessibility. To address these challenges, the utilization of drones has emerged as an innovative approach. Drones offer the potential to automate field quality control and streamline water sampling efforts for data collection in diverse water environments. This paper focuses on the design and development of a water sampling system integrated with a drone, featuring an automatic lock mechanism activated after rigorous field quality control, ensuring the reliable collection of water samples in various scenarios.
