Smart City Underground Water Leak and Theft Detection System with IOT

Authors(2) :-J. Vinoj, Dr. S. Gavaskar

This paper depicts regarding those plan and usage of an advanced smart city water leakage following furthermore identification framework will screen furthermore recognize spill for those help for remote networked sensors. The goal for this improved framework will be identify workable underground water spillage to private water pipes that would monitor starting with a workstation. Therefore, a hearty also dependable remote sensor organize which create arduino uno micro controller board, information from remote sensor (water flow) will be gathered those information what's more monitored looking into a workstation with identify those correct spillage position. When a spill is detected, those water utility must take restorative activity will minimize water misfortunes in the water appropriation framework. Subsequently the recommended framework will be used to spare water furthermore lessens those trading cosset.
