Floods impact lasting social consequences for communities and individuals. Immediate impacts include loss of human life, damage to property, destruction of crops, loss of livestock, and deterioration of health conditions due to waterborne diseases. Long-term impacts include displacement, loss of property, and disruption to business, schools, and infrastructure. Many dams and waterways are decades old and are primarily monitored through a system of visual and internal inspections for wear and tear.
Goals and Objectives
Forecast and manage flood risks, and change the behavior of flood waters via smart dams and levees.
Cloud-based analytics including Big Data and dashboards, AI, machine learning, IoT, and Bluetooth
Use Case Summary
Through remote hydraulic monitoring of waterways and levees, and performing predictive maintenance of dams and infrastructures, dams and waterways can be kept in top condition, and smart controls can divert water to avoid flooding.
