Hi guys, how are you going?! These days have been so full that I had to stop posting, but I intend to come back sooner. Some weeks ago me and a friend of mine (Rafael Oragio) were working in a new project. We've built a pluviometer using Arduino integrated with Google Maps.The basic scope of the project was to help cities on prevision flooding. Think in a big city where exists determined areas where the risk for flooding is bigger than others. How could you predict this and suggest alternative routes for traffic, for example?
All the time we had to think was about a week! We intended to bring it on in a fair at college.
Rafael worked most of the time in the prototype of the embedded system with Arduino. The solution worked with C++ programming, capturing the reading values of the sensor, using a simple fuel car meter.
While he was working on the embedded solution, I worked with the integration with Google Maps and thinking about some requirements.
It looks like very complicated, but it isn't.
My intention with this post is to encourage you to put your ideas to work. We are day by day feeding the idea and the next step is to improve the prototype and after bringing the solution professionally, building a better device with a better sensor for capturing more precisely rain measures.
