'Killers’ Part 2: Keeping Water Flowing with Mobile Phones
Synopsis
Water pumps are a lifeline for many communities in developing countries. But how can you monitor them all to know whether they’re in working order? And can you collect data based on pump usage to provide useful insights into community health? With so many water pumps so vital to so many vulnerable communities in developing countries Dr David Clifton explains how the work they’re doing seeks to find a way of monitoring large numbers of water pumps, using smartphones. And with the huge volumes of data collected, can they spot patterns that give tell-tale signals that other things aren’t going right in the community? [11 minutes]
