2019: The Improvement and Maintenance of Automated Telemetry Stations
2019: HII has improved and maintained the Automated Telemetry Stations total of 947 stations, of which 234 stations are totally upgraded to version 4.0 and the rest of them are inspected and maintained to be ready to use. HII currently provide 591 Automated Weather Telemetry Stations and 356 Automated Water Level Telemetry Stations covering the whole country.
All collected data from HII’s Automated Telemetry Stations are processed at HII’s data center and publicly available at “www.thaiwater.net”, and “ThaiWater Mobile Application” (Android and iOS). The system can also send SMS to alert government agencies and stakeholders for preparation when critical water situations (e.g. heavy rain areas) which potentially lead to disasters are detected.
During fiscal year 2019, HII has developed and maintained Automated Telemetry Station to become more stable. Now the continuation of data transmission is more than 87% with more than 99% accuracy of SMS alerts to the related organization for preparation before the natural disaster.
