Abstract

Coordinate and collaborate for the development of the hardware and software related to the actuators modules to be used for pumping on variable demand. This activity includes the integration of the modules to the wireless sensor network and the implementation of methods and classes to achieve the minimum power consumption. Two actuation options are foreseen: associated pumps and inverter pumps.
