Project:
To monitor the Ringdyke close to the Scheldestraat in Amsterdam we placed several Geobeads monitoring systems for Alert Solutions. With these systems the pore water pressure, the slope and temperature in the soil strata below the top of the dyke can be perfectly measured. The systems can consist of one to several hundred sensors and it is an addition to the existing monitoring methods such as visual examination.

The measurements are send from the wireless communication system. After that the Datapanel of Alert Solutions can be accessed through a secure internet connection. From this location all data can be looked into. It is also possible to request up to date reports and graphics. In this way it is possible to access the current measurements of a dyke from any location and at any moment.
