Abstract

The development of efficient flood alerting systems became more demanding in the last years. In this paper it is presented the first version of a prototype intelligent system for flood forecasting and real-time alerting. The system is implemented by using a microcontroller from the ARM family, Marvell 88F6281, and has a user interface realized under the Free UnixBSD operating system. Also, a knowledge base is integrated in the system. The real-time alert is sent to the decision making factors via a communication channel (such as, the internet, a mobile phone, or radio communication). Some experimental results obtained so far are also discussed in the paper.
