In the evening of March 18, three ICTU students won the first prize of the Start-up Student Ideas competition with the Smart Water project.
From the fact that water plants in the current management and business need a large number of human resources to check water quality, water consumption index, household payment collection, a group of students of University of Information and Communication Technology (ICTU) has designed a system that can replace people doing these tasks. These devices connect to each other and display parameters to a website.
Visit the website, the factory can control the quality of water, the situation of selling water, receive feedback from the households. Consumers also know how standard the water consumed by them is, how much water they used in a month and how they can pay online. This will save significant cost for the water plants, and consumers will also see the transparency in water purchases.
