The National Institute of Technology (NIT) Andhra Pradesh Students has developed a WiFi-mounted microcontroller that can integrate sensors for Smart Rainwater Harvesting. According to the NIT team which has developed by team LinkLer, an end-to-end software stack that provides an easy interface to manage and control in-house water resources, the Smart Rainwater Harvesting System with WiFi-mounted microcontroller technology can automate the process of water storage, reduction in water-borne disease, and efficient storage.
“The system monitors wastewater and supply systems such as rainfall recorded, water remaining in the storage tank, water quality index, and water supply in a given area. “The NIT Andhra Pradesh students have also designed an underground storage tank with a material capable of holding the water for a long-term basis and its treatment process being monitored on a feedback IoT system,” said CSP Rao, Director, NIT Andhra Pradesh.
