Open-source Sensors, hardware, and algorithms for the measurement and control of water systems



We’re trying to make it easy for almost anyone to use sensors, embedded systems, or cloud hosted data services in urban water systems. If you’re looking to deploy flood sensors, measure green infrastructure, or even control storm or sewer systems, then we have a number of solutions to help along the way. Our designs are open source and free. Use them  for your research or commercial applications and consider sharing your designs with us to help grow a community around real-time water systems.

Our efforts are sponsored by the Great Lakes Protection Fund.


Maintained by the Real-Time Water Systems Lab at the University of Michigan.
