Abstract

The present world is intimidated by the problem of water scarcity that is to be addressed immediately. So, it is wise to treat wastewater to meet the massive need for drinking water for the fast-growing population. The magnificent application of Internet of Things (IoT) technology in many smart cities has derived fruitful results. This research study has proposed a real-time system using IoT that regularly monitors specific crucial parameters of a wastewater treatment plant and informs any plant's dysfunction to the operator. Furthermore, the large stream of data sets generated by IoT sensors in real-time can be analyzed and processed by complex event processing (CEP). This study was experimented with Smart Treatment (SMARTreat) architecture and its application in a simple water system of an industrial estate in South India. The proposed architecture showed outstanding results and has received positive comments from the water treatment plant managers.
