Vila-seca expands its meteorological observation network with the addition of 2 radar water level sensors integrated into Weathercloud and Sentilo

The new LX-80 sensors provide accurate real-time data, enabling municipal technicians and Civil Protection to enhance monitoring of flood risks during heavy rains, facilitating a quicker and more effective response.

Strategically placed at critical locations across the municipality, the new LX-80 sensors use radar technology to continuously measure water level fluctuations. Powered autonomously by solar energy, these sensors transmit real-time data via 4G to the Weathercloud and Sentilo online platforms, allowing remote monitoring and management by municipal technicians and Civil Protection. Integrating these sensors into the smart city platform Sentilo further expands the possibilities for data utilization, facilitating integration into urban management systems and supporting informed decision-making by local authorities.

This innovative project, a result of collaboration between Darrera and Nexus Geographics, not only represents a significant advancement for Vila-seca in preventing and managing emergencies related to extreme weather conditions and climate change, but also underscores the municipality‚Äôs commitment to innovation and continuous improvement of its residents’ quality of life.
