Natural resources have been becoming scarcer all across the globe and India, with its booming population, has been among the worst sufferers. The need for water management is being felt now more than ever, particularly by the farming community in the country. IBMS provides the perfect solution for water management and there is a need to extend such IoT and AI-based solutions to the farming sector as well. 


At 1.38 billion, India is the second most populous country in the world constituting about 16 pc of the total human population on this planet. Estimates suggest that by 2050, we would overtake China and become the most populated country in the world. The rapid increase in population is bound to put more stress on the limited natural resources available in the country.

One such casualty has been our water reserves, which have been depleting at a much faster pace now. India has only 4 per cent of the total fresh water reserves of the world and it is suffering from water scarcity as the groundwater table is going down rapidly. As a result of that, fetching water for agricultural purposes from wells and other natural resources has already become a challenging job for the farming sector in the country.

  • India has only 4 per cent of the total fresh water reserves of the world and it is suffering from water scarcity as the groundwater table is going down rapidly.
  • Global warming has been resulting in irregular rain during the harvesting season while the climate change has been causing droughts in many parts of the country.
  • Radius has come up with smart sensors that can be fitted in the water tanks of a housing society to track the water level. The smart system automatically starts and stops the water supply to the tank.
  • The IoT and AI-based technologies can also prove to be a boon in the fields of agriculture and weather forecasting which, in turn, can help farmers save water and energy.

While the entire world is facing water shortage, India’s problems are more acute. Global warming has been resulting in irregular rain during the harvesting season while the climate change has been causing droughts in many parts of the country. Farmers are the worst victims of these droughts as with wells going dry, they are forced to use ‘untreated’ water for irrigation, which is toxic in nature and causes damage to the crops.

All this calls for the utmost necessity of water management, at all levels. Thankfully, with advanced technologies, like the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI), smart devices are now available that not only track water consumption but also save water. Radius Synergies International has come up with smart sensors that can be fitted in the water tanks of a housing society to track the water level. The smart system automatically starts and stops the water supply to the tank depending on if the water tanks are empty or full, thereby, saving a huge amount of this natural resource.

The water management solution from Radius Synergies International is just one of the pillars of its Integrated Building Management Solution (IBMS). The IBMS by Radius is a smart system that provides various smart solutions like prepaid metering solution, diesel generator monitoring system, smart streetlight system and heating and cooling ventilation systems. The IBMS integrates all these smart systems and makes them act as a single unit. These systems then coordinate with each other smartly and efficiently and help in saving precious resources like water and energy.

The IoT and AI-based technologies can also prove to be a boon in the fields of agriculture and weather forecasting which, in turn, can help farmers save water and energy. As the mankind struggles with global warming and climate change phenomena, these smart devices can be used to find a sustainable solution to the water and energy crisis in our country.
