Weight Watching

Weight Watching

Moving solid waste in and out of facilities quickly is highly valued within an industry that frowns upon any excess amount of downtime involved in the necessary weighing process. Even more detrimental than lengthy weighing is inaccurate weighing.

Inside the Internet of Things

When you think of the Internet of Things movement, or IoT for short, you might think of a refrigerator that tells its users when a bottle of milk is getting old. Or maybe you picture an alarm clock that not only wakes you up at 5:30 a.m. but also tells

Soil Water Sensors

Soil Water Sensors

SOIL MOISTURE MONITORING CAN be useful as an irrigation management tool for both landscapes and agriculture, sometimes replacing an evapotranspiration-based (ET) approach or as a useful check on ET-based approaches since the latter tend to drift off target over time. All moisture sensors, also known as soil water sensors, measure

Updated Efficiency

The history of SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) begins with the widespread development of computers in the 1950s. Before manufacturing and remote sites started to grow, people managed the standard control and monitoring processes by hand. As mainframe computers grew in popularity, utilities and industries adopted the concept of

Armoring Against Erosion

Armoring Against Erosion

It’s easy to assume that with sophisticated computer simulations, wireless monitoring, and engineered materials, we’ve conquered water management, but a look into our past might just dampen this hubris. When it comes to erosion control, everything old (really is) new again.
