WaterSpy aims to develop water quality analysis photonics technology suitable for inline, field measurements. WaterSpy technology will be integrated, for validation purposes, to a commercially successful water quality monitoring platform, in the form of a portable device add-on. WaterSpy will be used in the field for the analysis of critical points of water distribution networks. Waterspy solutions will be demonstrated in two different demo sites in Italy.

Integration week going on in Vienna (TU Wien)

Looking forward to the first operational prototype! #WaterSpy @Photonics21 EU_Photonics #H2020

NEW DEADLY-BACTERIA DETECTOR TO PREVENT WATER COMPANIES FROM CLOSURE

A European research team is developing a photonic-ultrasound-based detector that will save water companies from closure in the wake of tough new drinking-water regulations, soon to be implemented by the WHO, providing the quickest ever safety diagnosis for deadly...
