River4U is a decision support system (DSS) for the management of whitewater discharge from sewage. Water Utilities will benefit from River4U as they will automatize the opening/closure of sewage gates according to weather forecast, save costs of manual inspection and decrease the risk of flooding due to backflow within the network.
The product will use different types of data (meteorological, hydrological and plant data) ingested with a constant flow through APIs. Artificial intelligence algorithms will be trained to reconstruct forecasted levels in each gate position. The decision support system will allow the managers to identify the criticalities in the given sections and optimise the alert procedures during extreme events.
Usage of Standards for data interoperability:
Rest API, docker
*Expose phase is open to all Experiment phase teams
The experience gained working with Hydropower companies, Water Utilities and Public Authorities, both in Italy and abroad, gives the company a well-rounded vision on water supply issues and a pragmatic approach to suggest the best solution.
The team, made up of professional figures with expertise in hydrology, meteorology and hydraulics, boasts visibility in Europe through awards in the context of Big Data, Satellite Data and Climate Change.
