Abstract

Heavy downpours always bring trouble to Hong Kong during the rainy season. Severe rainfalls and flooding will delay the transportation, cause the loss of property or even kill lives. However, there is limited research that investigated the problems of the drainage system and stormwater management. Regarding the Internet of Things (IoT) development and successful example of IoT application, Hong Kong has the potential to become a smart city. The smart drainage system is one of the possible research directions. A prototype IoT system is decided with hardware and software. Experiments are conducted to collect the data. The data is then used to train the Artificial Neural Network. The analysis and predictive maintenance solutions are proposed to help the stormwater and drainage management. The results show that a well-trained algorithm can predict the drainage situations. The cross-validated results showed that it is reliable and able to predict most of the testing inputs. This paper aims at benefit to Hong Kong drainage service and the society.
