A flood alert and forecasting solution via a smart device

IOT flood alert - A smart device-based solution for information, anticipation and alert of flood risks

The OGOXE IOT uses smart devices to predict and forewarn local authorities, people and businesses in the case of a flooding event, allowing for improved response measures.

Between 1995-2015, floods accounted for 47% of all weather-related disasters, affecting 2.3 billion people worldwide. By installing sensors which monitor real-time water levels, this solution gives stakeholders timely and relevant updates on the situation, including the need to evacuate. The system continues to function even if electricity and the cellular networks are down, as the sensors are solar-powered and will continue to communicate amongst themselves. Ultimately, it enables communities to be more resilient against the increasing threats of climate change.
