Hydrostream (aka Hydrosense) is a server-based platform for the collection, visualization, annotation and analysis of water pressure in a home setting. The pressure sensor can be attached behind the dishwasher, under the sink or on a spigot outside. With intelligent analytics, the system is capable of detecting patterns in water use.
As the first residential laboratory of its type, the Aware Home has received great media attention and provided a valuable venue demonstrating the multidisciplinary nature of Georgia Tech research. Since 2000, Aware Home Research Initiative researchers have leveraged the facility to investigate many areas of research including: data delivery to the home, innovative sensing and control infrastructure, and a variety of applications to support home residents.
