In certain regions of the world, access to safe and potable water is not always guaranteed.
Students from the School of Advanced Digital Technologies (ETNA) in France developed the WellCheck project.
It is a low-cost sensor for assessing water quality.
The floating sensor analyzes the water in the wells and the antenna sends the data to an application, which makes it possible to visualize water pollution.
The sensor collects data related to pH, turbidity, temperature, and chemical oxygen demand.
Students plan to test their 2021 solution in Africa, with support from the Sigfox Foundation.
