Bérengère Lebental from the Université Gustave Eiffel has co-written the chapter entitled “Improving water quality and security with advanced sensors and indirect water sensing methods” in the book “Instrumentation and measurement technologies for water cycle management”.

This chapter introduces advance research works in sensing within the LOTUS project addressing low-cost multiparameter sensors for water quality.

“As far as Water is concerned, a lot of new directives and world concerns highlight among others the need for using ICT technologies, the global healthcare issues, the demand for fresh water, the food/beverage quality and safety, the environmental protection and the security strategies to reduce intentional contamination, all of the above having worldwide massive economic, natural and social impacts. However, despite an increasing demand for adaptability, compacity and performances at ever decreasing costs, the vast majority of water network monitoring systems remains based on sensor nodes with predefined and vertical applicative goals hindering interoperability and increasing costs (OPEX and CAPEX) for deploying new and added value services. Innovative technological products could answer the following acute needs in the field. This chapter introduce advance research works in sensing within two H2020 EU projects: the aqua3S project addressing sensors for Water Security purposes and LOTUS addressing low-cost multiparameter sensors for water quality.”
