Smart Water Conference

Professor Zoran Kapelan will give an invited talk at the SMi’s 6th Annual Smart Water Systems conference held in the Copthorne Tara Hotel in London on 24-25 April 2017. The conference is packed with high quality speakers from the water industry. They will be addressing a wide range of topics related to smart water systems. Professor Kapelan will be talking on “Automated Detection of Pipe Faults in Smart Wastewater Systems”. It is based on an ongoing research project with WISE CDT student Josh Myrans and Professor Richard Everson.  The team has been working closely with Julian Britton, Rehabilitation Manager at Wessex Water, to develop new technology for automated detection of structural faults in sewer pipes by using standard CCTV footage, image processing and artificial intelligence techniques. The initial results obtained seem promising with high detection rates achieved in real world pipe networks. For more information please contact Prof. Zoran Kapelan  or read more here.
