Planners, operators, and municipalities in the water sector usually struggle with unexpected heavy rains and serious floods because the precipitation data is missing. Such important data as duration, intensity, time and location (rain- and snowfall) are critical in the drainage system management. If transparent and reliable precipitation data is provided on time, various measures can be taken to prepare the storage capacity in the retention basins, collection channels, and wastewater treatment plants.
A German company that has 40 years of experience in the water industry understands this challenge and its impacts on the local inhabitants. Therefore, the German technology leader in the water sector, has applied IoT concepts to develop a portal to provide the actual and forecast information of precipitation in local areas. The data is fed into the system every five minutes and thus ensures accuracy and reliability. The technology enables real-time monitoring, analysis and control. The data is displayed in various forms (charts, tables) and can be used for preconditioning or planning purposes in various areas.
The German company's portal can be further integrated with other software (remote monitoring, automation software, etc.) to create an autonomous water cycle in a water smart city. Proactive measure can be taken by the authorities based on the comprehensive information provided.
Partners are sought for commercial agreements with technical assistance. Potential partners are engineering offices, consulting firms, software provider, or the companies performing civil work, construction and installation. They should integrate the solution in their projects and services. The German company offers technical support and transfer as well as marketing support and assistance in first end-user meetings.
