Water Monitoring Networks - iWater

Reference number
Coordinator Stockholms kommun - Miljöförvaltningen
Funding from Vinnova SEK 5 985 642
Project duration May 2018 - November 2021
Status Completed
Venture The strategic innovation programme for the Internet of Things

Purpose and goal

The aim with the project was to develop a solution for digital monitoring of water quality, and investigate the applicability in a smart city. Within iWater an IoT-solution has been developed consisting of a platform with an AI-based analytical tool, which enables detection of changed water quality based on sensor data. A developed business strategy has resulted in an increased opportunity for further development of the project results, and the potential use in a smart city has been identified.

Expected results and effects

A solution to digitally monitor, analyze and visualize data has been developed. Two types of sensors has generated real-time measurements from lake Mälaren and the drinking water distribution network. The sensors have been connected to a developed IoT-platform, where data has been analyzed through machine learning to indicate deviating water quality. The benefits and values of the developed digital solution have been identified and a detailed value map with costumer segments has been developed.

Planned approach and implementation

The project has been implemented through the development of the technical solution; installation of sensors, connection to the IoT platform and development of machine learning algorithms for data analysis. The project has also included communication and collaboration in various forums in order to exchange experiences and communicate the project results. Benefits, values and potential applicability have been identified through seminars and workshops.
