Our Sewer Inspection System at Industry Events

Catch the team at events throughout the country, helping people understand how PipeAId and its AI sewer pipeline inspection solution can make a major difference in their communities. Find events that we’ll be attending below.

APWA Washington Spring Conference

April 10-11, 2024

Artificial Intelligence (AI) transforms sewer inspections, replacing tedious CCTV reviews with efficient machine learning algorithms. This revolution accelerates data processes and enhances defect coding, reducing costs for infrastructure owners. B&N’s AI, incorporating GIS, creates a digital twin of the sewer system, enabling precise mapping for informed decision-making.

By attending this session, participants will be able to: explain how artificial intelligence can augment an operator’s ability to apply PACP coding quickly, accurately and consistently to sewer pipe defects; assess the maintenance and repair benefits of integrating pipe defects into an existing GIS mapping system; and evaluate the long-term advantages of consistent coding by providing repeatable results, enabling a fair analysis of the complete sewer network.

Annual AZ Water Conference & Exhibition

April 23-25, 2024

Arizona utility owners are adopting AI for sewer inspections, reducing time and costs. AI replicates contractor workflows, enhancing defect identification accuracy by eliminating bias. This technology minimizes field time, boosts footage inspection rates and reduces owner expenses. Computer vision AI, powered by machine learning, enhances accuracy by analyzing CCTV video for issues like taps, cracks and roots. An AI model assigns codes to defects, improving over time.

B&N’s AI platform integrates GIS, creating a sewer system digital twin. This aids in assessing assets and pinpointing defects spatially. Utility providers can make informed, transparent and repeatable decisions by replacing PDF reports with a dynamic database. The digital twin is a central hub for system maintenance, improving efficiency.

Pacific Northwest Section AWWA Conference

May 1-3, 2024

Artificial intelligence (AI) has evolved into a highly valuable asset, presenting significant benefits in terms of cost and time savings. An exceptional AI platform called PipeAId, developed by Burgess & Niple, combines AI with GIS technology to analyze CCTV video footage, detect pipe defects, assign NASSCOPACP codes to these defects and generate a digital replica of the collection system. This “digital twin” provides a comprehensive overview of sewer assets, precisely identifying the location of defects and construction features along each pipe using geospatial data. By harnessing the power of this technology, utility providers can promptly evaluate the condition of their infrastructure, empowering them to make well-informed decisions based on transparent and reproducible data-driven insights.

Additionally, the digital twin serves as a revolutionary tool for utility owners, transforming their approach to system maintenance. It serves as a centralized hub, enabling comprehensive visualization and monitoring of the condition of every pipe. This centralized approach significantly enhances their ability to manage and maintain the system effectively, guaranteeing optimal performance and minimizing potential issues.
