The Government of India (GoI) has tied up with Intel to form a public-private partnership to conduct research on water and air pollution monitoring. The Department of Science and Technology (DST)- Intel collaborative research for real-time river Water and Air Quality Monitoring (WAQM) initiative would consider proposals from academic and research institutions in the area of such online monitoring systems and provide grant-in-aid support to the selected projects. The aim of the initiative is to develop key technologies for sensing, communication and analysis of large-scale data collected from autonomous networks of perpetual/long-lived sensor nodes, followed by integration and deployment for water and air quality monitoring in real-time.
