MONRE, Vietnam – Telemetry added to KISTERS Water Solution Framework
As reported earlier in 2016 (link), KISTERS have been working in close cooperation with Harmony Soft, a Vietnam-based software company, to consolidate the existing environmental monitoring system on behalf of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MONRE) in cooperation with the Vietnam Environmental Administration (VEA). This is a major benefit for the purchasing authorities: KISTERS’ field-proven and mature software provides the most complete set of functions and allows heavy customization to reflect local needs.
In 2015 the team of KISTERS and Harmony Soft edited a concept document reuniting architectural and functional requirements with a system design based on KISTERS software components. Part of this design document is a telemetry system that was installed and commissioned recently. The new system collects data from remote data loggers and supports both HyQuest Solutions devices and third-party data loggers. A new logger communications driver was developed to facilitate integration with a third party data logger which will be predominantly collecting water quality information.
The procurement, adaptation and deployment of the software solution is funded by the World Bank project “Development of an information system for integrated management of industrial pollution in the 2 river basins of Nhue-Day and Dong Nai”.
