Devices and machines report directly to the responsible service employee. On the basis of traffic frequency, toilets along motorways inform the cleaning personnel in almost real time as soon as cleaning is necessary. Regular control trips are thus a thing of the past.

Heavy rainfall and effects on sewers: Data logger for heavy rain monitoring

Heavy rainfall events are occurring more frequently worldwide and pose an increasing challenge for wastewater systems. The intensity and frequency of heavy rainfall events are being intensified by climate change, which can lead to overloading of sewers. In this article, we analyse the effects of heavy rainfall on sewers and discuss possible solutions to the problem. In particular, we look at the opportunities and possibilities with data loggers.
