This manuscript presents low-cost sensing systems for the monitoring of liquids, namely water and beverages quality assessment, with remote and in-site monitoring capabilities. The collaboration with several research groups allowed the development of smart optical platforms and low-cost sensors based on plastic optical fibers for the measurement of turbidity, color, refractive index and water contaminants.
