Students at the National Institute of Technology, Andhra Pradesh (NIT-AP) have created a ‘Wi-Fi mounted Microcontroller’ that can incorporate sensors for rainfall harvesting. This method can automate the water storage process, resulting in a decrease in water-borne disease and more efficient storage.
The students from Team LinkLer want to use Deep Tech like IoT (Internet of Things) and Machine Learning to alleviate water shortages in Indian cities. The team created an end-to-end software stack that makes managing and controlling in-house water resources simple.
The system keeps track of wastewater and supply systems, including rainfall, water left in storage tanks, water quality index, and water supply in a given location. The NIT-AP students also created an underground storage tank with a material capable of storing water for a long time and a feedback IoT system to monitor the treatment process.
