The Smart Obrometer with Flood Alert Apps System are developed to collect, record and monitor data regarding the amount of rainfall volume in specified areas, especially those are susceptible and risky to have major flood or flash flood phenomenon. This system consists of rain sensor, tipping bucket, controller and flood notification apps via wireless technology.
The tipping bucket used to measure the amount of rainfall according to the tip drop frequency. If the number of tipping is more than the threshold setting, it shows that there is possibility of flood to occur. The controller will process the amount of rainfall, and then the data sent to the meteorology base station. In addition, the data can be receive by the risky flood residents via application software, ran on smartphones, tablet computers and other mobile devices.
Furthermore, the system is also powered by solar power energy as one of the initiative towards energy saving and acculturate the green technology application. Hence, this system presents a practical solution to give a precaution reminder to residents of flood risky areas on the probability of the flood occurrence based on accurate measurements of the rainfall.
