Pipeline Intelligence Program presents VAPAR - Streamlining CCTV pipe inspections with AI

VAPAR recently showcased its cutting-edge AI solutions to Victorian water authorities in a webinar hosted by the Intelligent Water Networks (IWN) membership group. Over 40 professionals from various Victorian water authorities attended the session, eager to learn about the latest advancements in artificial intelligence within the water industry.

During the webinar, VAPAR demonstrated how their innovative platform enhances the inspection and maintenance of water and wastewater networks. By utilising AI technology, VAPAR’s solution improves the accuracy and efficiency of defect identification in CCTV footage of pipes. This automation not only reduces operational costs but also bolsters the reliability and sustainability of water infrastructure.

VAPAR showcased how their software supports risk-based decision-making on pipe networks. By leveraging AI, the software analyses vast amounts of CCTV footage, accurately identifying and categorising pipe defects. This detailed analysis enables water authorities to prioritise maintenance and rehabilitation efforts based on the severity and risk of the identified issues. The AI-driven insights help optimise resource allocation, ensuring that the most critical areas receive attention first. This approach not only improves operational efficiency but also enhances the long-term reliability and sustainability of the pipe networks, aligning with the strategic objectives of water authorities to manage infrastructure proactively and cost-effectively.
