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.
