Choosing the Right Telemetry Method for Your Remote Water Monitoring Applications

Choosing the Right Telemetry Method for Your Remote Water Monitoring Applications

Blog
To develop the most efficient data measurement, collection and relay system, it is important to consider your requirements before selecting one. To start, assess how remote your monitoring stations are…it is an urban network or a network having remote stations in mountainous or desert regions.  For perspective, think about if your cell phone has signal or not. Also, consider if your network is mixed; where some stations are urban, and others are remote. Next, assess what the data will be used for and how critical the data is. For example, will the transmitted data be used for flood forecasting, emergency management and response, or long-term trends and analysis. It is also an imperative to consider who will consume the environmental data you collect. Will it be just your organization or…

OTT Hydromet Helps Improve the Management of the Longford River in the UK

OTT Hydromet Helps Improve the Management of the Longford River in the UK

Video, Water Flow, Water Level, Water Quality
  VINCI Facilities in the UK, manages around 37,000 assets in the Royal Parks (such as fountains, statues and royal memorials for example in Kensington Gardens) and the water features are fed by the Longford River. If you have ever travelled in west London, there is every likelihood that you have crossed the Longford River – probably without realizing it. Built for King Charles I in 1638/39, the river travels from near Heathrow airport to feed the water features in Bushey Park and Hampton Court Palace. Maintenance and ongoing management of the Longford river are required as it helps protect industrial and residential areas, which the river passes through, from flooding and helps preserve the ecological status of the river. Checking the status of the Longford River used to be…
