Sewer Robots Snoop Through Poop to Track Drugs and Disease

If you get past the eck factor this makes a lot of sense for all sort of things. Now its not really a robot, its more just an IoT Sensor that measures various components of sewage and really if you can measure something, why not do it.

That’s an excellent source of data I hadn’t considered. To me, the really cool part of this is how it can scale. You could start with one node at the sewer treatment plant, then one node at each main trunk, then eventually at every street or every house as the economies change. Thanks!

I wonder how robust these units will prove too be. Raw sewage contains a lot of “contaminates” perfect for blocking suction lines.

Can we please stop talking about sucking sewage? I’m trying to eat lunch here! :smiley:

Then I won’t tell you what I have spent the day working on! I work within the water industry, both clean and … :whistle:

Oh stop it, we all know that is your second lunch.

I knew if I mentioned lunch I would get @ Gary’s attention… :whistle:
