Traditionally, water discharge at canals is operated manually using local upstream control. Usually, the water discharge is implemented as per a pre-specified schedule which is fixed. Hence, the discharge from the upstream is unresponsive to the requirements of downstream demands, may result in an inefficient use of an invaluable resource. The gate control mechanism for water discharge at canals is an automated, accurate model for efficient water use. The system accepts the Quantity of water to

The system is implemented using LabVIEW platform , which provides proper graphical user interface and precise control.
