This short video shows how a simple electronic device inside smart water pumps can be used to monitor the supply of water through the pumps. Data from these pumps is analysed centrally and can be used to detect when a pump is not in use, indicating that a repair might be needed. This means that a skilled mechanic can be sent to repair the pump, enabling the supply of clean water to be restored.
