River Flood Monitoring with Ultrasonic Sensors

Omixom SRL is an engineering firm based in Córdoba, Argentina specializing in Agriculture and working with Government entities to provide solutions.

How this system works

The autonomous station takes samples of the water level and rainfall in a strategic location of the riverbed.

This data is sent via a satellite to a web server.

The station is able to optimize the data with a certain level of intelligence to interpret the data and make decisions based on the data.

Industries Omixom works in:

  • Agriculture
  • Government

How is this solution used in Agriculture?

For agricultural use, Omixom provides remote monitoring of water flow channels used for irrigation systems and animal feeding. 

This solution uses the MB7052 sensor connected to a microcontroller-based hardware that sends real-time information about the level of water flowing in a channel. 

The same hardware can also measure rain and other environmental variables if needed.

This information is accessible through the Omixom web system along with water flow calculation and other hardware related information.

 

How is this solution used in Government?

The Government uses this solution to have real-time information about the level of rivers and water streams in order to anticipate river flooding. 

This information in the hands of the right people helps resource planning or emergency action. The same hardware can also measure rain and other environmental variables if needed.

This information is accessible through the Omixom web system along with other hardware related information.

 

Sensors Used in this Application?

The MB7052 sensor continuously measures distance to water. This information is taken by the hardware, then processed and finally sent through GPRS or satellite connection to an internet server where final users can check the information.

 

Why Work with Omixom?

Omixom has been remotely monitoring different environmental variables for over 10 years with over 500 autonomous units installed over Argentina.

In 2016, they added water level monitoring to their system with excellent results on over 60 different locations with MaxBotix sensors.

Their communication with universities and qualified personnel in hydric knowledge allow them to provide top-level solutions.
Omixom’s services are provided in South America.
