Real Time River Water
& Air Quality Monitoring (WAQM)

Access to clean water and air is indispensable to human life. Yet, managing this access in an efficient and effective manner is an immensely complex challenge. With this background, the Department of Science and Technology, Govt. of India (DST) and Intel® have collaborated to initiate a research program titled “Research Initiative for Real-time River Water and Air Quality Monitoring (WAQM)”. The program will be administered by the binational Indo-U.S. Science and Technology Forum (IUSSTF). The aim of this initiative is to develop key technologies for sensing, communication and analysis of large-scale data collected from autonomous networks of perpetual/long-lived sensor nodes, followed by integration and deployment for water and air quality monitoring in real-time. The overall objective is to develop tools and constituent blocks that will enable end to end water and air quality monitoring systems on smart, networked, low cost, low power sensor nodes with large scale cloud based data analysis.
