IJkdijk

Stichting IJkdijk is the innovative dike monitoring organisation for inspection and testing based on sensor systems. This development programme results in nationally and internationally marketable dike monitoring systems (smart levees). The smart application of the monitoring philosophy leads to significant cost savings and deferred investments for water management authorities both in the Netherlands and abroad. Stichting IJkdijk anticipates that all Dutch water management authorities will be operating this philosophy and will be monitoring their dikes with innovative systems in cases where it is worth doing so.

Between 2007 and 2010 Stichting IJkdijk conducted groundbreaking experiments in dike monitoring with the aid of sensor technology. The next stage of the IJkdijk development programme began at the end of 2011.
