Introduction

A network of Floud devices dislocated onto the urban territories of areas interested by floods, is able to provide unprecedented insights on the causes and evolution of flood events, as well as to serve as an advanced early warning system to the population.

The device embeds sensing measurement tools capable of detecting several flood-related conditions, (such as the presence of water within an area, water elevation, flow pressure, water temperature, turbidity, etc.), and transmits the measured data to the cloud-based data collection environment. Such environment is responsible for receiving and storing the measured data, and pairing each measurement with the geographical location of the device it originated from. Several client applications can then consume the stored data and provide different representations of it. M �
