Saving water resources
提案內容 The team uses big data and machine learning to detect tap water leaks. Local water pipe clocks of the sensors will be connected to a big data platform through which data will be collected and analyzed using machine learning to quickly find out the leak location and/or predict the possibility of leaks. This will significantly shorten the check time from the original 2 months to 1 to 2 days. The team has also been recommended and invited to participate in the accelerometer program in New Zealand to help local water companies improve their management of leaks. For instance, Taiwan Water Corporation has begun to use data analysis methods to detect water leaks in outlying islands of Penhu and Keelung thus water leak detection efficiency has increasingly improved.
