IoT meets Earth Observation
Flooding is a global problem on various different scales. The idea of the challenge is to design a low budget controller for barrages that can be used on-site. We're thinking of areas that are to small to be controlled by existing flood management tools and to big for manual or even no control.
During the hack you should make use out of earth observation data to calculate flooding conditions for a given area. You can use diferent data, like terrain, soil moisture, weather data, it is totally up to you. This should be combinded with an on site sensor steered by the Raspberry Pi platform. It is up to your creativity how you design the concept.
In some cases we need to simulate actions of the controller. For example if you want to lower or rise a berrier by a motor we have to use LED's to simulate the condition closed, half-open, open for example. Again it is up to your creativity what you can really show and what to simulate/assume for your solution.
The ultimate goal would be to develop a low cost flood managment solution that is able to control a barrage automatically steered by on-site sensors and a EO driven prediction model.
