Advanced Pipe Sensing for Leaks and Breaks

Webinar Only Spanning fundamental discovery science to real time application on live water networks.
Advance Pipe Sensing

Brief Description:

Spanning fundamental discovery science to real time application on live water networks, this multi million dollar venture will use five different strands of smart sensing research for condition assessment and leak detection to prevent catastrophic breaks in what is a multi-billion dollar global problem. The program involves real sensors in a city-wide network, putting this work at the physical end of the IoT and Smart Cities developments. This collaboration draws upon the expertise of several leading research universities and water utilities under the co-ordination of the NSW Smart Sensing Network.

Key Takeaways:

Several different physical sensing modalities will be developed and implemented.
Data analytics will be developed to aid prediction and prevention.
The research is being undertaken on real water networks, with immediate adaption of findings into industry systems.
Appeal to a broad spectrum of engineers, from to civil and geo engineers interested in city-wide infrastructure, to mechanical and electronics engineers interested in instrumentation and sensors, anyone looking at an effective research-industry partnership, and those with an interest in Smart Cities and IoT.
