GSM-enabled sensors for monitoring handpumps to improve water services in Rwanda
Portland State University, working in partnership with Living Water International (LWI) and SweetSense Inc, and with support from MTN Rwanda and the Government of Rwanda conducted a pilot of Machine-to-Machine, GSM- enabled sensors to monitor functionality of LWI managed hand pumps for improved maintenance. The seed grant sought to demonstrate the cost effectiveness of using real-time information to improve maintenance services for reduced downtime and improved functionality of rural hand pump services.
