The increasing interest in the Internet of things and the drive for ‘sensors everywhere’ has resulted in an increased requirement for low cost sensors. This is beginning to become a reality partly due to increased global competition in the sensor supply market. Although sensor cost reductions in the water and environmental monitoring sector has been achieved in recent years, it is debateable as to whether this has been significant enough to impact on numbers of sensors fitted or deployed.
This SWIG Low Cost Sensor workshop will address where the Water Utility and Environmental Monitoring sectors currently stand in use of low cost sensors, and will provide some case studies demonstrating how water and catchment management have benefited so far from advances in this area. Examples from other industry sectors will also be presented to provide an insight into benefits gained within these sectors, and inform on how these can be translated into water monitoring requirements. Within this theme, the workshop will also include presentations from academics working on novel inexpensive sensors to provide some foresight into sensor systems for the (near) future.
