The smart water
meter, developed by Prof Thinus Booysen of the Department of Electrical and
Electronic Engineering at Stellenbosch University, will be rolled out to a 100
schools in the Western Cape – thanks to a sponsorship by the Shoprite Group.
This initiative was launched in Cape Town at the Western Cape radio station,
Cape Talk, today (8 November).
It is expected
that a million liters of water could be saved a day.
The smart water meter project is being commercialised
by InnovUS, SU’s technology transfer office, and
incubated by the Nedbank Stellenbosch University LaunchLab, SU’s business incubator,
through a spin-off company, Bridgiot (Bridge to the Internet of Things).
