Presentatie 72e Vakantiecursus

Advanced Technologies for Smarter Water and Wastewater Systems

The talk will present several advanced technologies for improved management of water and wastewater pipe networks. These technologies are based on integration of engineering knowledge and principles with Artificial Intelligence type methods that are used to extract useful information from large quantities of sensor/other data. Some of these technologies are now used by large UK water utilities and have resulted in significant financial savings.
