WaterGridSense 4.0

Water is one of the most important resources to us as human beings and to life in general. As such, there is a great need for managing this resource adequately. Unfortunately, German and international water utility companies, who operate vast water networks, sometimes have surprisingly little knowledge of what is happening within these networks on an ongoing basis. Traditionally, providing such monitoring has been deemed infeasible as the equipment was too expensive to setup and maintain. However, with the introduction of new technologies for sensing, wireless communication, and distributed computing using commodity hardware and open source systems, this goal is finally achievable at a fraction of the cost.

The BMBF-funded WaterGridSense project is a collaborative effort between water utilities (Hamburg Wasser, Berliner Wasser Betriebe), industry experts (Ingenieurgesellschaft Prof. Dr. Sieker mbH, Walter Tecyard, Funke Kunststoffe, ACO), and research institutions (Technische Universit├Ąt Berlin, HAW Hamburg). It aims to design and implement a distributed sensor network in combination with a scalable data analytics platform for providing an online view into the current state of the water networks beneath our cities, as well as, using machine learning techniques to optimize the maintenance of these important facilities.
