Cheaper Water quality management system developed

Press Trust of India  |  Thiruvananthapuram 

The Indian Institute of and Management- and have developed a water quality management system.

'Swatchpaani', powered by Watson Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, can continuously monitor water quality and measure temperature, pH and the presence of various metal/non-metal substances in the water, to ensure that the levels do not exceed standards prescribed by agencies, a press release here said.

It supports data analysis in real-time and trigger alerts if there are anomalies in the water samples.

The project also incorporates a pre-screening mechanism to test the water quality of mobile water distribution systems.

Swatchpaani includes Libelium, signal conditioning boards and sensors and Raspberry Pi for connecting these to Bluemix services and Watson IoT platform for device and sensor data management, analysis and visualization.

Dr Asharaf, Principal Investigator, Swatchpaani Project, IIITM-K, said the solution could potentially save time and costs of water quality management.

The conventional method of testing water quality is often inaccessible and time consuming.

The IBM Watson IoT platform is an easy-to-use, secure and scalable solution which provides seamless integration with various IoT devices to build specialized, integrated solutions to solve industry and business challenges.
