The Indian Will Avoid Wasting Money On Water Leaks Thanks To This AI System

The AI system can help cities across the world to detect water leaks, even the smallest ones in pipes.

Scientists at the University of Waterloo in Canada have invented a system which can help cities across the world to detect water leaks, even the smallest ones in pipes.

Being designed based on artificial intelligence technology, the system will be an ideal solution to minimize water losses that happen in many parts of the world. The researchers also applied signal processing techniques of high sophistication into this system; and hence, it can realize sound originating from water pipes and differentiate telltale signs of leaks from normal signs.

Hydrophone sensors integrated into the system record the telltale signs. The advantages of these sensors are cost-effective and easy to install in fire hydrants, and we won’t have to excavate or disassemble all the system to check if any incident.

As a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Waterloo, Roya Cody showed his belief on its potentials to improve efficiency in repairs and maintenance of water pipes. Instead of reaction when an incident occurs, citizens will hold the much more initiative.

Detecting water leaks is so crucial because it can help us avoid unexpected consequences like deterioration of the structures’ foundations, water-related diseases, or costs to maintain and repair water pipes.

With the system’s support, it’s not essential to bring workers to the flood zone to check a section of pipe directly with possible problems as we have done now.

The built-in advanced signal processing techniques are the key factors that help the AI system to pre-process the audio data and identify water leaks more easily.
