Dr Abubakr Muhammad invites you to learn about the Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) work in mathematical modeling, sensing, information processing and control that aims to realize efficient management of hundreds and thousands of networked irrigation channels in an integrated manner. Their methods are currently being deployed for testing and comparison by provincial irrigation departments and local water management institutes in Pakistan. In the wake of a worsening water crisis and in full realization of the social and economic impacts of disruptive automation, they strive to find out the limits of 21st century engineering to save a complex 19th century irrigation system from total collapse.
