An extremely affordable, IOT-integrated water quality monitoring system was created by a student at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati.
With its integration of IoT, various sensors, and AI ready for improved water quality monitoring, the R-SAM-PRO gadget thoroughly answers important needs related to water and sanitation through technological innovation.
Real-time data provided by the system is essential for resource management and environmental conservation.
Because of its low cost and intuitive design, it is very accessible and has the potential to be widely used, particularly in environments with limited resources. This might greatly improve the methods for monitoring water quality.
“The cost, accessibility, and real-time data transfer capabilities of our platform are what make it impactful on social communities. Satyam, a PhD Scholar at the university’s Department of Biosciences and Bioengineering, stated, “We aim to empower communities and authorities with the tools needed for effective water resource management and remediation by providing a cost-effective, multi-parametric, IoT-enabled solution.”
The gadget brought him the title of “Best Product Design” in the Water and Sanitation category at the esteemed Vishwakarma Awards 2023, which were presented by the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi in collaboration with the Maker Bhavan Foundation and the WIN Foundation.
The goal of this competition was to find and assist India’s top innovators in science and engineering colleges when it came to technology.
‘Water & Sanitation, Clean Technology & Smart Mobility’ was the subject for 2023.
“Satyam’s project, a shining example of technological innovation, demonstrates a profound comprehension of the difficulties encountered in managing water resources, especially in underdeveloped countries. Prof. Sanjukta Patra of the Department of Biosciences and Bioengineering at IIT-Guwahati stated, “The system’s affordability, accessibility, and real-time data transmission capabilities are not just a testament to his technical prowess but also his commitment to societal betterment.”
According to Satyam, “the critical issue of water pollution, especially in developing countries,” motivated him to build the device. My goal was to provide communities and authorities the tools they needed to manage water resources effectively.”
This real-time water monitoring system powered by the Internet of Things has advanced data retrieval, a hybrid power system, many sensors, and integrated GPS.
