CTRL+SWAN - Cloud Technologies & ReaL time monitoring + Smart WAter Network (AG126)

Ctrl+Swan Action Group (www.swan.technology) will be devoted to the further development of innovative sensor systems’ technologies to be integrated and implemented in the design of an innovative approach to the water distribution networks management, with the broaden goal to introduce our concept of Smart WAter Network (SWAN) as a key subsystem of the notion of Smart City, as it has been recently recognised in the scientific and technical international community. To tackle the above mentioned issues, we will therefore focus on techniques and technologies for water quality monitoring via innovative sensors and devices, in order to design and implement enlarged data models in a reliable early warning system for a more efficient water distribution network management, and extend our studies on the novel technique for designing i-DMAs compatible with hydraulic performance and optimized for water network protection.

 

WHAT

Ctrl+Swan will perform the following activities to contribute to trasform the traditional Water Distribution Systems (WDSs) in modern Smart WAter Networks (SWANs):

  • develop innovative sensor systems’ technologies
  • define water network partitioning techiniques
  • implement a cloud platform to manage big data control

 

HOW

The insertion of smart sensors in the water distribution system requires a modern approach for the management of SWAN. In this perspective, the activities of AG Ctrl+Swan will be devoted to:

  • develop innovative smart sensors to be placed in a water distribution network for a fast and online detection of an enlarged set of microbiological and/or physical-chemical parameters in order to monitor and to assess water quality
  • design decision support systems to define optimal partitioning and sectorization of SWAN, applying the paradigm of "divide and conquer" and the criteria of "dual-use value" and, consequently, defining network dynamic layouts (acheved with smart sensors) to improve the management and the protection of water supply systems.
  • implement a smart platform to collect and manage data from sensors in an early warning system that will provide a rapid feedback to an overall water management system that will accomplish the goal to continuously meet water quality fulfilments and to efficiently plan maintenance intervention. It will be based on multi-sourced and cloud data platforms including quality and quantity monitoring. The platforms should include data sources from water cycle and data sources from other interconnected domains network utilities, such as electricity, gas, the Internet, etc.
