Watercourse and water level - any good experience?

(Morck) #1


We have a working LoRa-setup running and testing multiple ideas. We´re focussing on monitoring water level and perhaps flow rate (in first case not necessary) in smaller watercourses. Anyone that has some good experiences, that you can share?

Hi Danny,

We’ve seen some use cases measuring waterlevels with ultrasound for example.
Can you tell us (show ?) a bit more what you mean exactly , what your’e doing.
Is ‘we’ a company or a private person ?

I represent the local municipality. Our watercourse are in smaller scale, with maximum 2 meters depth and 5 meters wide. The case is that we´re planning monitoring the watercourse and later on installing local water stations. One scenario is that we´re interested in rise of the water level after rainfall.


LoRaWAN could be an excellent ‘fit’ for your use case I think.
One or more gateways, public or private backend and as much sensors as you need.
for example

I’m sure that someone here have some experience with this.
