Resource management is basically the awareness, monitoring, budgeting, balancing & optimizing the intake, creation of alternative resources i.e. recycling & reuse, Rain water harvesting & all possible efforts to optimize the cost & usage.
One of the crucial challenges of water management as well as conservation in a city is to determine the amount of water that any particular city is going to utilize during the next day. This can be calculated to precision with the use of predictive analytics. This is done by keeping a track on the history of water consumption in the city on any given day.
Based on the historical data collected and analyzed by predictive analytics and combined with the consideration of special events, holidays, as well as the weather in that city, we can determine the amount of water that the entire population is going to consume in one day
What Is IOT :-
We have been associating the Internet of Things technology specifically with smart homes, smart cities as well as traffic management systems where they would control the way our lights, doors and traffic lights would work. However, a lesser-known fact about the Internet of Things technology is that it is also applicable across many other fields associated with our day-to-day lives. One such area which can get highly influenced by the Internet of Things technology is water management. Ever since mankind came into existence, the proper use as well as management of water has been a topic of much debate as well as caution for everyone.
With the use of Water Tech (Electronics/IOT based) products & systems it is possible to do proper bench-marking of need, monitoring of actual use, Water balancing, maximizing reuse etc.
- Level/Flow/Pressure control
So how exactly will the IoT technology help in water management as well as conservation, To begin with, there is the need for level sensors and equipment which are deployed across the reservoirs and overhead tanks. It is to be noted that level sensors are specially- designed sensors which can establish the level of water present in a tank/reservoir. This established water level can then be communicated to the central servers which are deployed for the purpose of effective water conservation as well as management. This information is passed on to the central servers on a regular basis, which further helps in determining the amount of water usage on a daily basis and also indicates the level of water that is present in the reservoirs or tanks.
