Water companies have a large number of remote and unattended sites, many unmonitored by traditional SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) systems. Without visibility of the operating state of these sites, teams can be dispatched to the site unnecessarily or when there is an incident without the necessary equipment. Both increase the operational costs and risks associated with an incident.
CGI’s Water Treatment Watch service provides a unique insight into the operation of such sites, eliminated wasted visits and alerting to events that need intervention. Our Internet of Things (IoT) driven solution is a cost-effective means of monitoring remote and unattended sites. Machine Vision uses deep neural net AI technology to interpret images and video, using machine learning to recognise expected activity and events.
