"HYDERABAD: As dengue and malaria cases increase, the Telangana government is looking to conduct ‘mosquito surveillance’, wherein Internet of Things (IoT) technology would monitor, in real time, specific areas and alert the administration if it warrants action.

The system will gather information such as mosquito density in an area and larvae count, and generate mosquito maps based on location, gender of the species and sub-species."
