Solutions to the “Water Resources & Large Scale Water Management” challenge
Sustainability of any form of life on the earth is linked to water. The availability of fresh water is crucial in the survival of humanity. Therefore, it is vital to assess the available water resources and determine the water budget. This is why we are developing a systematic and real-time monitoring system of quality and quantity of surface water using geospatial technology.
The novel approach of research for the decontamination of waste-water finds a pioneering success which resulted a promising option for the preservation of aquatic life even in this era of mega industrialization, simply by rapid detoxification of heavily contaminated waste-water even the production unit exhaust effluents.
Efficient water monitoring tools provide ways to detect pollution before it happens – yet common sensor technologies are not portable nor user friendly. We propose the detection of emerging pollutants by using colorimetric affordable test strips using a simple and spot in dip- check method. The fabricated strips enable the detection by simply dipping the probe in test water and observing naked eye color change – which can then be further analyzed by a simple mobile app.
Development of cost-effective and inclusive digital water management solutions, driven by monitoring and remote sensed data. This solution includes crowd sourcing, that can aid Indian water mission with water conservation and the reduction of non-revenue water.
At Peater, we develop an autonomous, self-sustaining
IoT monitoring system specifically designed for peatlands. Our sensor network continuously monitors the health of peatlands on several attributes and transmits the data back to the farmer. Thus, the farmer can get a real-time insight of the wellbeing of their peatlands, and be notified when risk of wildfire or drought is detected. Peater saves nature’s most vital CO2 capture tool before it’s too Late!
