Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority, UK trials flood sensor network in St. Neots
Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority, UK Sensor
Six locations on the River Great Ouse were selected for the pilot. Sensors from local company cThings leverage LoRaWAN connectivity for live tracking of river flow, level, and temperature. Local officials receive messages when sensor readings indicate potential flooding in Huntingdonshire. This trial evaluates the effectiveness of early-warning messages and potential collaborations with local organizations. A successful pilot may see an expanded sensor network supported by new LoRaWAN gateways.
Water management is an increasingly important issue for Cambridgeshire and the Combined Authority is working with communities to develop a better grasp of flood risks across the region. Forewarned is forearmed and the sensors in this pilot trial can notify community flood groups so that they can respond more quickly to manage the risks and reduce danger.
