Abstract: An infiltrometer is a device used to measure the rate of water infiltration into soil or other porous media. The double ring infiltrometer is a widely used method of infiltration test used in many applications related to water resources engineering. The conventional method of infiltration measurement and related experimental work are too tedious and time consuming. The present work focuses on the design and development of an infiltrometer equipped with arduino which enable to collect the infiltration rate from the instrument in a more effective way without the intervention of human effort. The depth measurement in double ring infiltrometer was integrated with UV sensors, programmable arduino board, transmitter and a receiver. Mentioned innovative product produce great level of convenience compared with the conventional method.
