flood-network-pic-220Ben Ward joins VUC to talk about the tasks Oxford Flood Network are facing, and how they’re accomplishing them using technologies like IoT.
Unpredictable weather and urbanisation are causing ever more frequent floods in our rivers, watercourses and drainage systems. To understand this we need a new way of monitoring potential flooding. Low-cost wireless sensors and the Internet of Things make this possible.

Flood Network makes a low-cost network of low-profile sensors to detect water levels and feed flood models with accurate and timely data.
