Blackberry launches water monitoring solution

BlackBerry has announced a flood risk and clean water monitoring solution, based on its AtHoc critical event management platform. The technology provides autonomous year-round monitoring and an early warning system, collecting and processing large amounts of sensor data and generating alerts based on the data insights.

BlackBerry has partnered with the University of Windsor to deploy the solution in Canada, where Indigenous Peoples are disproportionately impacted by these issues. Its proven benefits include its ability to identify seasonal and unseasonal water-related risks, generating significant cost savings for governments, utility companies and local communities.

Using the solution, local municipalities could save thousands of dollars or more annually in operating expenses, in addition to the environmental, safety, health and other benefits of early warning flood mitigation and clean water.
