Case Studies

Just a few places where open-storm is being used

Ann Arbor, Michigan

nodeinsNodelocationsThanks to multiple deployments throughout the watershed, we have been able to start a small network of sensors that help with the monitoring and control of water flow.  This is done through valves and nodes that are accessible through the cellular network and contentiously send data to create a picture of the conditions in the area.

Using open-storm technologies to study watersheds

We have partnered with Huron River Watershed Council to help with data access, sensing, and the control river water to protect ecosystems on the Huron River. To find out more about this project or the other methods being used to protect the river from climate change, you can also visit the Huron River Watershed’s blog.

Toledo, Ohio

 

Capturenodes2Working with the University of Toledo, we have been
able to begin to control storm water with a valve that is remotely controlled and powered by solar energy. Sensors also help indicate the soil moisture in the area.valverach
