OpenHack: Open River Monitoring System for flood prediction



  • So what is OpenHack, it’s an immersive open hackathon where students, professionals, researchers, makers and anyone with an interest in technology gather together to build a single project, disaster management, awareness and alertness platform in two days. I’ve been part of the hackathon as IoT/Hardware mentor from MakeGram community.

    OpenHack is very different from the normal hackathon, in the normal hackathon, it’s all about competition and everyone building a different solution, but here every single one working on the same problem and the same solution collaboratively. 🥰

    I have written a detailed blog on this and you can find here : OpenHack 2019 👨‍💻: 48hrs Collaborative hackathon Summary

    This thread is to keep a log on Open River Monitoring System



  • Update - Meeting Summary:

    Agenda: Sensor Selection and Connectivity option
    Time & Date : 10.15 PM to 11.20 PM (23/Sep/2019)
    Attendees: Swalah, Akash, Rafi, Alex and Salman

    We started the discussion from what we have done so far, and we know that we were stuck at sensor and connectivity selection.

    Cellular over LoRa WAN: LoRa WAN is not a good option since we need to set up the complete infrastructure from scratch. Also currently we are only planning to deploy 10 test nodes, it will not be worth setting it up just for that. On the other side, Cellular is already an established network which is feasible to manage 10 devices and can be implemented rapidly. Thus we are planning to go with cellular in the first batch. (Please share your feedback too, it's very important).

    Sensor parameters: After got into a conclusion on the connectivity, we started discussing the sensor parameters to be collected for the analysis and prediction. They are :
    -> Water level (High Priority )
    -> Water Quality
    -> River Flowmeter
    -> Rain Gauge

    Since we only got a few sensors details in past weeks, we decided to list them again based on the parameters and priority. We distributed them based on attendees interest.

    ToDo:
    -> All members are requested to submit sensor details before the next meeting which is scheduled for 7th December 2019 (High Priority)
    -> Documentation: If possible add our Mission and Vision to our GitHub page

    NB: Next team meeting will be on 7th December 2019 from 09.00 PM to 10:00 PM

  • @Suhailjr But I think since it's not a plug and plug play system and it will laying on the PCB for the long term, it might be fine. for me, it's similar to the Intel Edison and the PICO-IMX7 System-on-Module

  • @salmanfaris at last they update their design. T
    What you think on the updated connector. I felt like its more fragile and high chance for corottion issue due to humidity for long term use.

    Seeed is currently counting down for the 10 year anniversary of the debut of Grove 🎉. In the past 10 years, we have seen many wonderful projects created by Grove from our user and community. We want to invite you to join us to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of Grove 🤩.

    In the Grove 10 Years Celebration, we’d like to collect the stories of “Grove with You”, which we want to invite our users to share their stories they have with Grove products.

    => What project you’ve made out of Grove?
    => What is your favourite Grove?
    => which one was the first Grove you’ve purchased?

    Seeed encourages you to post and share photos, videos, stories of Grove in the Seeeed Forum, or any other platforms below that you’d like to use.

    The following ways to find us, and tag #grove10 to share the project with us!

    Twitter (@seeedstudio) Instagram (@seeedstudio) or simply email your project to grove10@seeed.cc

    Feel free to be creative in documenting your projects–we will be selecting top 10 most “Grovy” winning entries from the submissions, and the winners will receive a $100 Grove Surprise Pack 😋 as a special gift.

    Looking forward to seeing your projects! 🥳

  • @kowshik1729 I think that might not get since the platform is not opensource! but they provided everything you need to develop a system with that.
