Short summary
Sensor particles with buoyancy control and position detection are presented, which are used for flow tracking in large vessels, such as biogas digesters and waste water tanks. They were tested in the realistic flows of a biogas digester. The buoyancy control allows taring for good flow tracing by the sensor particles, and it lets them float to the surface after data acquisition for easy recovery. The fluid mixing was estimated from detected passages of sensor particles at a magnetic coil.
