For over 100 years the EGLV provides water management services in the Ruhrgebiet region. At about 100 locations state-of-the-art sensor systems permanently check for changes of in the environmental conditions. To manage water resources in a sustainable and efficient way, high quality data is required on a permanent basis. Unfortunately, sensors are impacted by rough outdoor conditions and unexpected external factors. As of today, the identification and correction of inaccurate sensor data is a manual process. Highly trained and experienced data experts fix data points on a daily basis.
We want to support the current process with a new “Smart Data Corrector”, which identifies inaccurate data points automatically and provides a recommendation how to fix them based on certain rules, analysis and understanding of the hydrological system combined with experience. This can be gathered through historical corrections made. The data expert reviews recommended values by the “Smart Data Corrector” and accepts them or enters correct values manually, if required.
A project duration of approximately 2 months is expected.
The project can be divided into three milestones:
