IoT and AI help China keep an eye on water quality
So many things can compromise water quality: pollution, flooding, invasive species … the list is endless. RichWay would rather think about ways to protect natural resources by introducing smarter technologies to the monitoring and detection process.
In 2015, RichWay built the first cloud-based IoT platform for China’s water industry, linking thousands of sensors deployed in rivers, reservoirs and other bodies of water. Then it trained AI‑based visual recognition to detect illegal activities on monitor cameras.
