Mobile Water Management

Saving water using smartphones

Climate-KIC Start-Up

Founding Year: 2012

Location: The Netherlands

MWM presents the newest innovation for irrigation canals. We provide accurate and reliable registration of water levels, gate positions and water gifts with smartphones by simply taking a photo. The photos and measured variables are stored safely in the cloud and are directly centrally available.With this central registration system one can comply with conservation laws.

Registration is just one side of the medallion; optimal advice for structure settings can significantly reduce the massive water losses (currently 20-60%)by an incredible 10-20%. Optional, in potentially corrupt environments, further reduction of water losses can be achieved through identification of the users and access management with NFC padlocks.
