Water Network Sensors for widespread use
Although in the last few years the development of information and communication technologies have fairly improved the water management processes these technologies still remain far from perfect, particularly for remote water monitoring the use of sensors probes in widely distributed networks represents a key challenge since their current limitations prevents their widespread use.
Typical inconveniences relate to maintenance needs, calibration periods, energy consumption and total cost of ownership. Within this project, research and development is undertaken to develop innovative sensors and probes that will address the actual disadvantages to make the widespread use of such sensors a standard procedure in water networks management. The aim of the Widesens Project is to develop, implement and test a novel multiparametric analytical probe based on unconventional sensors that present the best features for an economically viable widespread use in water networks.
