Resumen

CAMA-PINTO, Alejandro et al. Design of a wireless sensor network for monitoring of flash floods in the city of Barranquilla, Colombia. Ingeniare. Rev. chil. ing. [online]. 2016, vol.24, n.4, pp.581-599. ISSN 0718-3305.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-33052016000400005.

In Barranquilla, Colombia, the risk of deaths and property losses is associated withflashfloods in the streets, which is very high. Therefore, this paper shows the design of a wireless sensor network to monitor realtime hydrological parameters that influence the detecting of dangerousness level of flash floods familiarly known as "arroyos", product of sudden and heavy rains in a short time. The design of the network is made through a site survey to obtain the data and results that are used in this work. It has also developed a mobile web application that uses the Unified Modeling Language (UML ®) based on a list of requirements that displays real-time, on a street map of the city the dangerousness level of the stream at different points along its path. The designed system will be useful for preventive decision making by the end user and it is further developed to be replicable and scalable in similar environments. Furthermore, in this work it was tested the platform Waspmote and the XBee-PRO ZB (S2) Modules as a technological tool for the WSN.
