River Monitoring and Flood Warning Systems
The application of IoT-based level monitoring solutions in tracking the depth of various water bodies is indispensable. These systems are particularly essential in environments like rivers or other flowing water mediums, where water levels can fluctuate due to environmental factors.
During the summer season, rivers experience a decrease in water levels due to evaporation, whereas in the monsoon, water levels rise due to rainfall. By utilizing i-telemetry’s level measurement solutions, it becomes possible to continuously monitor the water level of rivers, streams, channels, or any other watercourse in real-time from a remote location.
Composition and Working of the System
The i-Telemetry IoT-based river water level monitoring system incorporates cutting-edge technology for automated river water level measurements. Utilizing both ultrasonic and RADAR sensor technologies, devices are strategically positioned along the riverbank. These sensors emit waves directed towards the river’s surface, precisely calculating the distance by measuring the time it takes for the waves to reflect back from the water surface to the sensor.
Gateways are responsible for gathering data from these sensors and seamlessly transmitting it to a cloud-based platform. All recorded readings are securely stored within the cloud layer, ensuring accessibility from any location in real-time. The system’s auto-calibration algorithms meticulously process the sensor data to provide accurate and reliable river level assessments.
With i-Telemetry’s end-to-end IoT dashboard, users can easily access and monitor the river’s water levels, offering a comprehensive and user-friendly solution for real-time river level tracking.
