    promise to improve the lives of the poor But what if it breaks down and no one is around to fix it The danger of being criticized as wasting taxpayer money looms large Image Credits Rob Hope Devex A quick fix restoring access to water A group of researchers from Oxford University has developed a battery operated data transmitter to avoid this scenario Attached to a hand pump the transmitter monitors the number of strokes a hand pump user makes The device then sends the data via text message to whoever is in charge of maintenance such as a local water manager Over time these data help predict when a pump warrants repairs The transmitter is part of the Smart Handpumps project funded by the U K Department for International Development which taps existing technologies to ensure the availability of water in rural areas where many continue to rely on hand pumps for clean water It requires a GSM network or mobile signal to function The device was tested in a few pumps in Lusaka Zambia in 2011 But researchers plan to conduct further tests this August in 70 villages in Kenya to ensure the device is compatible with different kinds of pumps and to find ways to improve it They also want to look into the possibility of using solar power or kinetic energy instead of batteries to power the device This will help drive down costs and it reduces negative effects on the environment The innovative idea behind it automatic alerts can already be seen in other sectors including health and agriculture Pill bottles that remind people to take their medicines and clip on chips that notify farmers when plants need watering up are just two examples A lack of capacity often complicates development initiatives around the world
