Can Smart Sensors And Devices Solve Australia’s Water Shortage? And Why The Rest Of The World Should Be Paying Attention.
As much as 10% of all freshwater goes to waste with broken pipes and leaks. Digital meters and other new tech are coming into play to help save water. These digital meters can track the consumption and the water lost and help save the owners money. It gives the owners an update so that they can repair leaks and pipes immediately. Taggle Systems, an Australian company, manufactures devices for use in a farm. Their devices are designed to offer extra battery life and endure unfriendly weather. Farming with the help of IoT will be more environmentally friendly and convenient.
Professor Ian Atkinson said farm water could be conserved through a system of interrelated computing devices, that could also soon make remote-controlled farming a reality.
Cane farmers in Queensland use the device by Taggle Systems which sends them a notification when the fertilizer-rich water has been sufficiently deployed. This alert saves a lot of water for the owner and keeps the nutrient-rich water from running into the Great Barrier Reef as all the nutrients could help in algae formation, leading to coral bleaching. These devices are also useful in cattle farming and in residential homes as it offers the owners real-time consumption data and patterns, helping them identify areas of concern and conserve water.
