An IoT-Based Mechanism for Monitoring Dam Structures

EasyChair Preprint no. 10576

10 pagesDate: July 16, 2023


Large dams are crucial, especially given how they generate power, but their hazards must also be carefully considered. To utilize them for dam supervisory purposes, compiling facts regarding dam infrastructure is necessary. On the basis of current technologies, a computerized system has been designed that enables the use of IoT for the safety monitoring of dams and mega hydropower projects. The purpose of the study is also to discuss potential IoT applications within a particular dam’s security surveillance tools. A novel data collection module for communication with sensors in the monitoring network is designed to make it easier to integrate many intelligent sensors. So that when security parameters depart beyond anticipated levels, the technology should promptly warn the relevant authority to take necessary actions. The danger of a significant breakdown of the dam is decreased by the deployment of infrastructure for controlling and tracking dam security as well as new technologies.
