Wireless Flood Monitoring Using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Technology


Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology is commonly used for object identification and tracking. In this study we explore the feasibility of its use in wireless monitoring of water level that will serve as an early warning system for flood occurrence. To measure the level of water, water detecting sensors monitors the signal and sends it to

Specifically answer the following questions:

1. What are the components of the system proposed? 2. What is the feasibility of RFID Technology as to be used as a tool in this study? 3. How will this system benefits the people in the area of implementation? 4. What is the level of precision of monitoring water level using RFID Technology?

Significance of the Study

The study will give great innovation especially to the residents near the riverbanks where flooding is their major problem during rainy days. Through monitoring of the water levels this could be the basis of possible flood occurrence. Early warning of upcoming flood will help save life and properties. Also the area’s disaster control unit will function well in bringing warning to the residents of the upcoming flood if they will utilize this technology.

Another significance of this study is to prove the transmission range of RFID when integrated into other devices and how useful the technology is. This study will also lead to future innovation that will use RFID technology in it most feasible aspects to aid people’s needs. The researchers will also apply knowledge they learned from their previous lessons and gain insights during the progress of the study.

Thus this study makes significance because RFID’s feasibility was explored for the development of a wireless water level monitoring as the basis of flood occurrence.
