U.S.-Pakistan Center for Advanced Studies in Water in collaboration with LUMS has developed and installed a Sensor – 1st of its kind in Sindh at Jamrao West Branch 30th mile, Nara Canal.
This project is aimed at advancing cost-effective, adaptive smart technology solutions which include real-time sensors coupled with hydraulic models and an end-user mobile application. The mobile application provides the opportunity to build the database for canal discharges as well as help the user to make evidence-based decisions. This modern technology and the data analytics project is providing support to the Sindh Irrigation & Drainage Authority (SIDA) to observe water flow and usage conditions at various locations of the selected distributary/minor.
