California Uses Blockchain And IoT To Monitor Groundwater Use
February 12, 2019 / RTTNews Staff Writer
California is using Blockchain technology and Internet of Things (IoT) to tackle drought by making groundwater usage sustainable. The Freshwater Trust (TFT) is partnering IBM Research and SweetSense Inc. to pilot technologies which can accurately monitor and track groundwater use in what is called "one of the largest and most at risk aquifers in North America." The University of Colorado Boulder is providing additional research support for the project, which is jointly funded by the Water Foundation and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. TFT is a nonprofit working to protect and restore freshwater ecosystems.
