Piezometers and Vibrating Wires for Remotely Monitoring Levees, Bridges, and Water – IoT Applications and Case Studies

What’s a Piezometer?

Piezometers measure pressure of ground water. They’re sensors that are also known as vibrating wires or VWs, but note that they’re much smaller than the German vehicles.

After drilling holes to deploy and measure piezometers, the vibrating wire sensors can report information about pressure in an aquifer.

Basically, piezometers can be used to measure and monitor pressures of liquids.
