  1.  
Shunya Innovations: Drinking Water Quality Monitoring for Households
A system for sensing and wirelessly disseminating consumer water quality (contamination) information in large urban water distribution networks.
This technology enables remote monitoring of quality of water in a region of interest through a variety of distributed sensors. It includes a decision support system for continuous analysis of this data, and raising alerts through e-mail/SMSs/alarms on discovery of any violations of WHO norms on water safety, and usage.

Intelligent Unique Innovations Limited (IUIL): iSWAM – Intelligent Smart Water Meter
A Self Powered Intelligent Meter when deployed, operates remotely to monitor water pipe distribution network without the need of physical access or visual field inspection. Continuous real-time remote monitoring keeps vigilance of the entire pipe distribution network to count every drop of water. Accurate location of pipe burst, theft or leakage can be detected using cloud backed advanced data analytics.

SensQube: An IoT based Platform for Smart Agriculture
A hardware/software device to integrate sensor data, human-provided information, computational models and wireless communications to manage crop resources.
SenseQube collects data from wireless agricultural sensors, integrates it with data and information provided by humans, and from these inputs performs process based modeling for agricultural crop water management, plant diseases, prediction of various related parameters, and yield improvement. The final goal is to provide advice to the growers on weather, irrigation needs and fertilization requirements.

Floodlite: Urban Flood Management
A service to forecast, analyse the effect of, and manage urban floods, and to design water drainage networks. This service will help guard against flash floods, it would prepare manufacturers, real estate companies, insurance companies and other businesses plan their business operations (inventories, etc.), services, material flow, etc., to minimize adverse impact from the floods.
  1.  
AgroCast: Drought Forecast and Usage in Selection of Crops
A real time 7-30 day drought forecast and its use in the selection of crops to be planted. This technology makes high resolution satellite data to provide real-time conditions and forecast water availability at different spatial (industry, block, district, watershed, and state level) and temporal (daily, weekly, monthly and seasonal) scales.
  1.  
Improved Ground Water Level Technology (IGWL): Aquifer Mapping and Recharge
A service to optimally locate water recharge sites and tube wells. This service is for locating recharge sites for directing groundwater flows, while ensuring sustainable and secure development and management of groundwater resources in a participatory manner in different river basins of India. Using a similar analysis and criteria, the technology also provides advice on locating water drawing sites, e.g., tube wells.
