Wipro launches IoT-based sewage monitoring solution – Wipro Sewage Monitor
Wipro has launched an Internet of Things (IoT) based sewage monitoring solution called Wipro Sewage Monitor to help municipalities keep a watch on their water systems in real time.
According to the Indian IT services provider, with climate change causing extreme weather, cities around the world want to upgrade their water and sewage infrastructure to quickly respond to the crisis.
Wipro Sewage Monitor is said to utilize advanced connected sensors and artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) platform for producing real-time insights to let organizations continuously track water systems and carry out proactive maintenance. The sewage monitoring solution helps cities and utilities to comply with environmental water policies, while protecting municipal workforces and communities.
Wipro has forged a partnership with UMPI, an Italian manufacturer of intelligent products and systems, which will use the Wipro Sewage Monitor IoT platform to empower European water companies to enhance accuracy and efficiency in monitoring their systems.
Davide Piccaluga — Chief Technology Officer of UMPI said: “Ours is a country where attention to water resources is particularly high. UMPI is honored to bring to Italy an innovative product like Wipro Sewage Monitor, which has immediately proved to help optimize system and management costs.”
The Wipro Sewage Monitor IoT Platform features a variety of advanced IoT sensors, including millimetre wave radar capabilities and temperature gauges that can be installed easily in aging water systems as well, said Wipro.
The sewage monitoring solution is also said to supports the efforts of utilities to protect the environment, as it helps them take the required measures to stop environmentally harmful wastewater pollutants from escaping their networks.
Wipro Sewage Montor is claimed to operate at a low cost for up to seven years of battery life.
Yves-Antoine Brun — Vice President and European Head – Engineering and R&D Services, Wipro, said: “IoT solutions like the Wipro Sewage Monitor show the impact and benefits that the addition of smart capabilities can have on vital infrastructure. With Wipro’s EngineeringNXT platform of offerings, we continue to invest in technologies that can help accelerate digital transformation and work with our partners in the public and private sector to keep moving forward.”
