About the Project

This project will work together with communities to drive innovation in Integrated water management system using IoT for flood resilience. It will involve sensing, monitoring, and data collection, to assist with design and validation of innovative solutions and develop a sustainable sensing and monitoring system.

This project will involve:

  1. Evaluation of monitoring and sensing approaches review existing data sources.
  2. Development of knowledge framework for sharing and disseminating real time data. 
  3. Creation of the foundations for data discovery and directory service in the form of tools enabling stakeholders such as community, scientists, councils, and citizens to explore and add various forms of static and real-time IoT data, to assist in design.
  4. Development and installation a monitoring and sensing framework for data collection, from fixed and mobile sensing devices to single federated repository. This will include scaling of existing IoT approaches and exploration of current models to ensure its sustainability.  
  5. Development of tools and methodologies to support the co-creation of services through community engagement considering varying levels of technical knowledge. 
  6. Validation of performance and usability of proposed innovative solutions on the integrated facility to demonstrate the added value.
