Kando’s end-to-end solution Clear Upstream provides continuous awareness of events in wastewater networks. IoT Sensing Units - Off-the-shelf water quality and dynamics sensors are integrated with a Controller and packaged into a robust, self-powered IoT unit. Introduced into the network at strategic locations via manholes, these units collect continuous data and transmit it to a cloud-based analytics engine. Some configurations of the IoT unit include automatic water samplers, primed to collect physical samples when triggered by real-time pollution events. Web-based Analytics Engine - Data collected by the sensors is pushed to Kando’s remote analytics platform, where thousands of datapoints are processed and cross-referenced to identify patterns and irregularities. This information is presented to clients as real-time pollution alerts and network health updates, using live maps, online dashboards, and text messages to ensure absolute clarity and maximum application value. Clear Upstream Methodology - Kando’s team examines each clients’ needs and network characteristics individually, using their analytics engine to generate a bespoke plan for IoT units’ optimal deployment. Units are then installed at strategic locations around the network, allowing for maximum data gathering at minimum cost. Unit locations are continuously reevaluated and optimized as more data is gathered and processed.
