Water level in a dam needs to be maintained effectively to avoid complications. This is generally performed manually which requires full time supervision by the operators & have fairly large staff complements. Moreover, the quantity of water released is hardly ever correct resulting in wastage of water & it is impossible for a man to precisely control the gates without the knowledge of exact water level and water inflow rate.


The main objective of this project is to develop a mechatronics based system, which will detect the level of water and estimate the water inflow rate in a dam and thereby control the movement of gates using IoT in a real-time basis which offers more flexibility. This system consists of a set of sensors connected through an 8-bit microcontroller. The water level will be analyzed using these sensors and updated in the webserver using IoT module connected to the controller. Authorities can view this information using internet from any place and also they can make a decision to control the dam gate through the same IoT module this is to avoid further complications.



This project uses regulated 5V, 500mA & 12V, 500mA power supply. 7805 and 7812 three terminal voltage regulators are used for voltage regulation. Bridge type full wave rectifier is used to rectify the ac output of secondary of 230/12V step down transformer.
