Union Minister launches Artificial Intelligence-driven Start-Up by IIT alumni for water purification

What is the News?

The Union Minister has launched Artificial Intelligence (AI) driven water purification systems developed by Swajal Water Private Limited, a tech startup company founded by IIT alumni.

What is the Water Purification Systems launched by Swajal Water Private Limited, a tech Startup?

Water ATMS: It combines Internet of Things technology with solar energy to provide clean drinking water. It uses solar energy to pump water from rivers, wells, ponds or groundwater depending upon the location. The water will then be treated with appropriate technology to make it healthy & pure for drinking. With this innovation, the cost of purified water can be brought down to as low as 25 paise per litre.

Clairvoyant: It uses artificial intelligence to optimize water purification systems and predict future breakdowns. Thus, it allows to remotely manage, update and repair each system in real-time.

What is Heli-borne Survey Technology for Groundwater Management?

It has been developed by the Center for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR)-National Geophysical Research Institute(NGRI).

The technology maps groundwater sources in arid regions and thus helps utilize groundwater for drinking purposes.  

It provides a high-resolution 3D image for subsurfaces up to a depth of 500 meters below the ground level and maps potential groundwater sources.
