Innovation with respect to inspection of flood defenses is accelerating. At the IJkdijk facility breach tests in test embankments are carried out on a regular basis, leading to new knowledge. Now also the LiveDijk Eemshaven writes history by making the progress of innovation in and around flood defenses more tangible: online data of sensors in dikes are now available for real-time viewing online.
Innovations do not just happen overnight. They require developments in various areas, the use of new evidence from trials and close cooperation between different specialist areas. Behind the creation of an innovation, like the display of a 'simple’ chart with real time data of a flood defense dike, is almost always a considerable amount of collaboration.
A demonstration page with the LiveDijk Eemshaven dashboard is set up on the website. This page is the result of close cooperation between the project group LiveDijk Eemshaven (Waterschap Noorderzijlvest, STOWA and Stichting IJkdijk), TNO, IBM and the innovation program Flood Control 2015. New information will be available on a regular basis. Keep a close eye on the website.
