Flood monitoring and warning system for embankment using IoT
MetadataShow full item record
In this advanced world of technology, Internet of Things (IoT) is an indispensable technology that can be used in various fields for solving real life problems. This study focuses one of the most important real-life issues for Bangladesh which is flood monitoring and warning system. In this work, a well-maintained embankment has been set up with different measuring devices to collect real data for flood monitoring. This system will incorporate the measurement of average rainfall, and humidity of air, water level of a specific river of a particular area of Bangladesh. A special indication through real data will act as a warning system so that damage can be reduced due to flooding. The system can be integrated with cloud server to monitor remotely. This systemized sensor data will eventually be delivered to the Water Board of that area and to people in the flood prone area with a critical condition warning alert via message/call in mobile phones. To design the system, a simulation has been performed to validate the design. After that a prototype of interfacing of the water level detection, soil moisture,humidity and temperature sensors including a microcontroller has been implemented to get the real data. This study will create impact on the safety of the local safe residents living nearby the flood-prone areas.
