Low-cost Remote Rain and Stream Data Acquisition System for Mapping of Potential Micro-Hydro Sites
Abstract: The stream and rain data acquisition system presented in this paper makes the mapping of hydro potentials in the region or of the country economically and practically possible. Moreover, it can also serve as a flood warning system.
