Nowadays Smart Cities have to face different challenges, such as climate change, population growth, and water availability.
The Covid-19 Pandemic has brought out many problems in the organization and management of different smart services. In particular, the digitalization of public services, and the water distribution networks are critical issues to be addressed.
With the Technology, it is possible to implement simple tools and services that automate processes and support stakeholders in key decisions.
This approach can be applied to different public services, such as water distributed network management.
WaterCheck was created to optimize the monitoring of water networks in Smart Cities and to support stakeholders in the key decision policies on the management of water resources.
WaterCheck is an innovative platform that uses the most modern technologies like Big Data, Blockchain, and IoT.

Watercheck’s innovation concerns smart data management. With a representation of the network on a Google map, it is possible to identify malfunctions and losses within the network in real-time. Through the use of optimized algorithms, with WaterCheck it is possible to monitor and maintain the network, minimizing the problems of water distribution to citizens.
The digitization process that WaterCheck has put in place, allows it to lay the foundations for an innovative service that can use AI and predictive maintenance for IoT devices.

WaterCheck is a system that has been developed and tested in the management of medium and large-sized smart cities. Compared to its competitors, WaterCheck is destructive and we are sure that it will become a fundamental tool for solving problems of resources and water distribution soon.


  • Representation of the water network and flows in real-time on a digital map (useful in identifying inefficiencies and malfunctions in real time);
  • Accurate analysis of a rather complex water network in order to extrapolate important information on its distribution structure;
  • Insertion of the federated blockchain concept for storing data on the maintenance of IoT devices installed by the organization that manages the network;
  • Monitoring of the water network through trusted and certified IoT devices;
  • Use of smart meters to allow to reduce the costs related to the management.

Innovative Elements

  • Digitization of a complex water network starting from existing projects;
  • BigData analysis and AI implementation for both flow management and maintenance.
  • Cyber security and blockchain for data management;
  • Remote reading and effective management of users.
