Székely Family and Co. proudly announces that upon request of the project coordinator of Horizon 2020 project aqua3S, it has joined the project as member of Security Advisory Board. The company will contribute with its expertise in satellite imaging, remote sensing, robotics, privacy, risk and resilience.
aqua3S combines novel technologies in water safety and security, aiming to standardize existing sensor technologies complemented by state-of-the-art detection mechanisms. aqua3S can propose innovative solutions to water facilities and responsible authorities in order to detect and tackle water-related crises in a timely manner.
On the one hand, sensor networks are deployed in water supply networks and sources, supported by complex sensors for enhanced detection; on the other hand, sensor measurements are supported by videos from Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), satellite images and social media observations from citizens that report low-quality water in their area (e.g. by colorization); introducing this way a bottom-up approach which raises social awareness and, also, promotes interactive knowledge sharing.
The proposed technical solution is designed to offer a very effective detection system, taking into account the cost of the aqua3S platform and target at a very high return-on-investment ratio.
The main strategy for the integration of aqua3S’ solution into the market is designed on the standardization of the proposed technologies and the project’s secure platform.
aqua3S project will create strategies and methods enabling water facilities to easily integrate solutions regarding water safety through the combination of novel technologies in water safety and the standardisation of existing sensor technologies. aqua3S has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program with a total amount of €5,997,067.88. aqua3S project has a duration of three years (2019-2022).
