From 22nd to 25th of October 2019, our partner EMALCSA (Municipal Water Company of the City of Corunna) on behalf of the BRAIN-IoT project, participated to the “VI Jornadas de Ingeniería del Agua: JIA2019”, organized by the Water Engineering Group of the E.T.S.I. Roads, Canals and Ports of Ciudad Real in collaboration with the spin-off of the UCLM Hidralab.
This event promotes the Foundation for the Promotion of Water Engineering. Water Engineering establishes the essential technical support to achieve the objective of proper water management, an increasingly valued resource. This requires developing bright and innovative solutions that meet the needs of society in a sustainable and efficient way, improving resilience to extreme and changing scenarios, fostering the circular economy, and within the context of the knowledge society.
The Water Engineering Days (JIA) were created in 2009 to respond to this need and they have been consolidated today as biennial scientific-technical meetings that bring together the best national and international experts.
BRAIN-IoT presented the article titled: “Integración de Herramientas de Gestión de los Sistemas de Agua Urbana en sistemas IoT Descentralizados” (Integration of Urban Water Management tools in decentralized IoT Systems). In this article, the authors present the results of testing a solution that could allow the integration of sensor systems and platforms within the EMALCSA infrastructure, identifying correlations between the obtained values and the existing platforms and infrastructure. For this purpose, the framework developed in BRAIN-IoT is implemented, to enable interoperability between the current management and control system with other existing IoT platforms and open-source initiatives in a decentralized manner. The distributed nature of the IoT makes it necessary for the BRAIN-IoT platform to ensure good security practices and with privacy and data integrity policies.
