- Literature study on sensor development
- Sensor development
- To measure unsteady flow
- Triggering of sensor after rainfall intensity crosses a certain threshold
- Identification of blockage in drains
- Data acquisition issues, if the sensor is not wireless
- Specific applications like sheet flow identification and measurement of overland flow contribution
- Wireless sensors (solar powered if possible)
- Work separately with Prof. Asokan
- Look at how different models work in a framework
- Role of IBM will start after data collection
