Hydroinformatics to make farms SMART

Smart farming focuses on increasing farm productivity through the use of technology - both hardware and software. Smart farming is concerned with the management of farms, plantations, and all associated farming activities through the use of IoT, drones, robotics, machinery, and artificial intelligence to determine a path to predictable farm output.

Smart farming is concerned with the management of farm activities through the use of data obtained from various sources (historical, geographical, and instrumental). Technological advancement does not necessarily imply that a system is intelligent. Smart agriculture technologies distinguish themselves by their ability to collect and analyze data. Smart farming uses hardware (Internet of Things) and software (Software as a Service or SaaS) to collect data and provide actionable insights to manage all farm operations, both pre and post-harvest.

Hydroinformatics, on the other hand, is a subject that deals with the application of data science and ICT in hydrology, hydropower, and hydraulic engineering. Data is also collected and analyzed here, and the process of water management for the intended use is optimally controlled using hard and software with the help of the collected data.

This article will demonstrate five different products that illustrate "How Hydroinformatics is making a farm "smart."

Lecture Series on Water Resources Routing Part I

In water resource engineering, routing is an essential technique for forecasting the flow and distribution of water within a body of water. It entails analyzing flow rates, channel characteristics, and topography to determine water travel. Engineers can effectively manage water resources, including flood control, irrigation, and hydropower generation, by having a solid understanding of routing. It makes it possible to evaluate the effects of water flow accurately and to make well-informed decisions about the construction of infrastructure and flood mitigation techniques. Additionally, routing maximizes the distribution of water for irrigation, guaranteeing a sufficient supply and reducing waste. Reliable systems for gathering and tracking data are necessary for efficient routing tactics. Potential fixes can help get past obstacles in the way of implementing routing techniques. The first lecture in my series on routing is this one. You may also like :  HydroGeek: The newsletter for rese
