Water Leakage detection
(Bojan Erker @ Mariborski vodovod &

NEED for AI:
Data from the flow sensors, placed on a water pipe, are collected using a remote system. Sensor’s data are sent over a wireless sensor network and are collected 2 times per month, because access points are not fully automated. The data are transferred into the information system and manually analyzed.
AI REGIO SOLUTION:
The remote sensing data can be used to detect wet water zones. By comparing water leakages and the results of the water consumption of the network the AI based reasoning for water leakage detection will be built up, which is then will be used to properly schedule the replacement of broken water pipes. Based on the gathered data, an automatic analysis of water pipe design types and/or suppliers shall be performed.
optimization of maintenance activities and water consumption
prediction of defects on a water-pipe system and reduction of water leakages
