The System aims at planning and management of floods using real time information management system and efficient prediction models. It also identifies areas prone to floods through Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs).
Additionally it aims at designing and manufacturing of sensors and development of appropriate distribution architecture to monitor the areas for the prediction of potential flooding followed by the training of the prediction system for future use.
Floods have long been considered as unpredictable and unavoidable threat to Mankind. Flood claims over 20,000 lives worldwide and creates damages up to nine-billion dollars every year. Flood management aims to reduce the vulnerability to life due to flooding, as well as to alleviate the damages resulting from flood disaster.
