Deutsche Telekom's headquarters is located near the Rhine, which repeatedly causes damage amounting to millions of euros as a result of flooding. Germany's longest river is well monitored, but not its many tributaries. And the partly fast-flowing waters are causing increasing problems. This is where T-Systems' IoT competition comes in.
The requirement for the participants is to make better flood forecasts possible with the help of advanced data analytics methods. The solution should be able to record parameters such as water level and flow velocity of Rhine tributaries in real time, combine them with sensor data from other sources (weather status, rainfall, etc.) and interpret them using algorithms.
