Increasing adoption of smart sensors

A smart sensor is a device that collects input from the environment and compares them with the output data to perform predefined functions. It provides advantages such as facilitating reduced interconnecting wires. It also offers increased reliability and helps improve a facility's performance.

"Vendors such as Rockwell Automation (News - Alert) offer such integrated smart sensors that increase the productivity of their users moderately. It is noted that the backbone of the IoT lies in the deployment of smart sensors for industrial applications. In potable water monitoring as well smart sensors will find the increased application," according to Sushmit.

Developments in global water industry

At present, with a growing global population and high rate of industrialization, the water industry has experienced a high pressure for expansion and betterment of facilities. Vendors providing devices for water monitoring and management are witnessing high demand for their products, especially from the municipal sector and the private utilities.

Economic development with high pace of urbanization is also tuning the need of efficient water monitoring solutions. Industries are more concerned with water and wastewater treatment to reduce their expenses in extracting new water from the water bodies and find it economical to recycle the water in the premises. Stringent regulations for water conservation are also prompting the existing industries to replace their old infrastructure and enable real-time water monitoring.

Emerging digital water programs globally

Governments of different regions are implementing digital water solutions to overcome challenges of acute water and wastewater infrastructure. Issues regarding sewage overflow and leakages in pipelines allow impurities to mix with water and make it polluted and harmful for human health.

Digital water solutions connect water plant operations throughout distribution networks, and therefore, optimize the treatment and quality monitoring. The software can improve operational efficiency and provide quality water to municipalities and consumers around the globe.
