LoRa Technology: Flood Sensor Monitoring With Real-time Data
Green Stream Technologies Advices When The Water Raises
The metropolitan region in Southeastern Virginia called "Hampton Roads" is prone to flooding. The area is home to two million citizens and 14 military installations, including Langley Air Force Base and Naval Station Norfolk, the largest naval complex in the world. Like many of the 665 coastal communities in the U.S., this region regularly floods during moderate to heavy rains and high tides. What started as an innovative pilot project to keep the city apprised of how high waters were getting and which roads were impassable is now Green Stream Technologies, which leverages LoRaWAN devices and networks to monitor and manage flood prone areas.
