Abstract: The control of water resources has become increasingly necessary due to population growth and climate questions. This control is so critical that it is related to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): SDG #6 is clean water and sanitation, which aims to ensure the availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all people. This study addresses the application of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) as a solution to water management problems in smart cities, highlighting the importance of the participatory construction of smart water meters (SWMs) as a potential solution to monitor water consumption. The design and implementation of SWM provides significant technical and social challenges, but promises to improve efficiency in water control and consumption. The objective of this study is to investigate SWMs, analyzed using the open design methodology to identify problems, questions, solutions and ideas in their implementation. We understand how SWMs can benefit water management and propose more effective and participatory solutions. The methodology adopted involves three stages: analysis of the case of Company X, selection of cases from the literature, and analysis with Open Design. Analysis is performed using Open Design artifacts to identify stakeholders, questions and problems, and solutions and ideas related to SWMs. As a result, it is possible to identify open problems and questions that need to consider a more participatory and inclusive approach in developing SWM solutions. The use of Open Design is promising and makes stakeholder engagement more effective in creating sustainable and affordable solutions. (More)
