Whether it feels gloomy, romantic, relieving or frightening, we always keep an eye on rain. Actually, more than one. Let us explain our vision.
WE GET SATELLITE SIGNAL
- When it rains, TV satellite signals become weaker. Our sensor network gets real time rain specific information from the signals received by the satellite dishes.
REAL TIME RAINFALL MAP
- Our data analysis central system analyzes such highly localized rainfall information and delivers interactive rainfall maps in high resolution, which provide a detailed, geolocalized pattern of how much it is raining and where. All in real time.
OPTIMAL DECISION MAKING
- Whether you are working within civil protection or private businesses, Smart Rainfall System will let you make wiser, faster and evidence grounded choices and commitments.
Real time rainfall monitoring lets you make betters decisions. Here’s why.
Weather phenomena have changed considerably: they are more localized, frequent and intense. Smart Rainfall System gives you highly detailed, real time rainfall data at a significantly lower cost than every current metric network. Read all the advantages down below.
Monitoring right here. Right now.
Smart Rainfall System is a brand new and not expensive type of nowcasting enactment. The data collected by SRS stations allow the system to create interactive high resolution, real time rainfall maps of the whole monitored area. Currently, no other rainfall detection system on the market provides these tools.
Our sensors: small and connected.
There is not much gear to get for Smart Rainfall System: it consists of a network of sensors deployed within the area to be monitored, operating as add-ons of commercial parabolic dishes. This inherently dense sensor network is what makes the risk analysis so detailed.
Easy and cheap to implement, thanks to pre-existing technologies.
Smart Rainfall System analyzes microwave signals coming from already deployed TV satellites and forwards the collected data over the internet or 3G data connection towards our central station. Easy as it sounds.
Data analysis is what makes SRS smart.
The central system, securely hosted on cloud trusted platforms, collects data from the whole sensor network, performs data storage and analysis, and delivers over the internet real time value added information to the final user.
We can save your money starting from today.
Rain gauges networks and pluviometric systems currently available on the market are expensive, and quite sparse. SRS‘ lower costs allow you to deploy a highly efficient, diffused monitoring network.
Smart Rainfall System is the result of a research carried out jointly by the University of Genoa, with its departments DITEN (Department of Electrical, Electronic, Telecommunication Engineering, and Naval Architecture), and DICCA (Department of Civil, Chemical, and Environmental Engineering), and the Genoese SME Darts Engineering Srl.
It is fully patented in Italy (UIBM n. 0001412786) and other international patents are on their way.

CAN YOU COPE WITH CHANGE?
Resilience is understood as the ability to cope with change. Maybe sudden change. Maybe a course of events that makes you, your team or your community completely vulnerable.
In the context of environmental hazards, sudden change hardly ever means anything good. One arguably solid difference between facing a crisis and facing a risk is the quality of their management.
When you manage a crisis, it means you are dealing with anything unexpected. It means you’re leading without having a clear idea of what to do, or of how and when things will end up. This has a negative effect on other people’s trust in you and a huge impact on whatever you professionally own: material goods, business relations, soundness.
When you manage a risk, you’re in charge. It means you’ve worked long ahead to control it and, whatever the outcome will be, you know exactly what to do, when to do it and how to make your coworkers and peers safe.
The only way not to get caught in a crisis is strictly linked with not underestimating risks and choosing to take action when those risks are least expected.
Resilience is a process, not a product. Understanding on what level of the process you’re on is crucial now for the times to come.
If you think of your territory, of your institution, of your activities, and of your people today, think also of how resilient you can be already.
Think it out loud: can you cope with climate change?
