Description: Advanced Pipe Sensing for Leaks and Breaks
By: Dr Don McCallum
NSW Smart Sensing Network
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.
