Water Supply, IOT


The Internet of Things is enabling smarter use of water at home. The water usage is monitored by deploying Automated Meter Reading (AMR), which helps in monitoring pressure, flow, usage of water. AMR based water supply applications, there is a loss of privacy and increased security risk from network or remote access. In this paper, Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) based nodes with Zigbee communication module are installed in each and every consumer’s place instead of AMR to sense and store the parameters like pressure, flow, and usage of water. The geographical region is dived into Zone based clusters for managing the nodes in an efficient way. Zone Head (ZH) is selected using election algorithm. The data sensed by each node within the zone by the Zone Member (ZM) is forwarded to ZH. ZH sends data to the next upper level Zone Head directly or intermediate node, Duplication is eliminated by using Header based duplicate rejection algorithm. The aggregated data is sent to the sink node. Communication is established between sink node and the server for billing, troubleshooting, and analyzing.
