Do you know how intense is the rain in this picture?

We do!


THE SmartRAIN TECHNIQUE


Direct measurement of at-ground rainfall intensity is mainly performed by means of tipping bucket rain gauges, which are sufficiently accurate only in a single point. Due to the high spatial and temporal variability of precipitation patterns, local measures are representative of an event at most within an area of 1 km2, but usually rain gauge networks have remarkably lower resolutions.

WaterView introduces SmartRAIN, a totally new technique for measuring rain intensity from the characteristics of rain streaks in photographs of rainy scenes. Useful images may come from traditional cameras as well from webcams, and prospectively from smartphones, which all become unconventional rain gauges. Surveillance cameras too may be used as high frequency sources of valuable images.

SmartRAIN, our patented image processing algorithm, allows to gauge rain intensity in real-time from pictures and videos shot during rain events, with the same accuracy of standard rain gauges. The spatial resolution of a network based on SmartRAIN, as a further matter, may be tenfold the resolution of a traditional rain gauge network, at the same overall cost.

A SIMPLE PROCESS


IT RAINS

Have you ever thought: "How much is it raining out there?"

YOU SHOOT

Shoot a photo with your camera or webcam, and upload it to our servers

WE GAUGE

We process your photo and return rain intensity to you via a web application



APPLICATIONS




TRANSPORT

A detailed knowledge of rainfall spatial distribution and temporal variation is fundamental for people and vehicle safety, especially along highways and freeways


AGRICULTURE

Pesticide treatments planning as well as irrigation cycles may benefit a lot from a precise knowledge of the amount of water fallen in a given period


SPORT

Supporting teams in sports like cycling or auto racing may use the real-time and detailed rain intensity informations given by SmartRAIN for assisting athletes and improving their performances
