LH2ORA (VITO): smart metering for durable water consumption
Historically, it has been almost impossible to connect wireless data communication systems to water pipes, as the setup would require too much energy. The LoRa-technology for long range data transmission, however, consumes almost no power, making it excellent for sustainable, large-scale networks.
Smart sensors and meters are hooked up to the central system via this radiotechnology. The LH2ORA project is a test case for both the wireless and automatic detection of leaks and the automatic management of water distribution in case of water scarcity.
