OpenHack: Open River Monitoring System for flood prediction
salmanfaris last edited by salmanfaris
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.
-> 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
@Anudeep Thanks a lot m8, I actually made a very silly mistake of including the https:// while entering FIREBASE_HOST, where I must have entered the Domain name alone and removed the https:// extension.
Thanks again for replying that quick. Cheers.
Hello @Palani, In the Firebase, there are two types of storage,Cloud Firestore (Very recent one & NoSQL database) Realtime Database (To which we upload the data using NodeMCU)
In the Arduino Code, you can see that there is a variable named FIREBASE_AUTH.
This variable should be assigned to the Database secret. This you can find in Project Settings -> Service accounts -> Database Secrets.
My mistake is, i have mistakenly assigned thay to Web API key. This is found at Project Settings -> General.
The error can also occur when u don't initialise a proper realtime database in Firebase. (This is not my case).
@Anudeep Hello Anudeep could you please help me out by elaborating the fix to get rid of that error?
Thanks in advance.

Applications must be submitted through their dedicated application portal which opens on August 20th, 2020 and will close on September 20th, 2020, 5 pm India time.
Application deadline: September 20th, 2020, 5 pm India time.
@kowshik1729 If you are using an external high-speed switch, there is only one one clock generator for both wifi and BLE and the high-speed switch you mentioned is Ultra-Wideband (UWB) 3–8 GHz from its datasheet
you also check this solution that I shared in the previous post.
There is a special option called “Software controls WiFi/ Bluetooth coexistence” it can control the ESP32's Bluetooth and Wi-Fi coexistence using software, more details: https://www.espressif.com/sites/default/files/documentation/ESP32_FAQs__EN.pdf
