A pilot by telco StarHub and the Hydroinformatics Institute aims to mine data on the impact rain has on mobile signal strength by using signal strength data between mobile base stations when it rains. If the signal is strong, it will indicate that there’s lesser rainfall. This is set to provide Singapore’s national water agency PUB with an additional source of information on rainfall intensity to better manage floods. Currently, rainfall is measured by rain gauges and CCTVs. But with only 80 gauges across the island, they are often spaced too far apart to collect high-resolution data.
