Abstract

After the malaria, Schistosomiasis or Bilharzia is the second disease that calls for admission to hospital. In fact, the Schistosoma that transmits the illness lives in water points. The proposed Sensor-Based Schistosomiasis Detection () architecture considers data collected by several sensors such as water temperature, water point pH, solar irradiation that are deployed in a natural environment, in order to develop more-sensitive disease-prediction and control-model. The main goal is to stop the transmission cycle of Bilharzia by forbidding the access of water point, for treatment, when the environmental factors are favourable.
