Water supply supervision

Water supply supervision

March 15, 2023 Uncategorized 0

A major importance of distributed sensing lies within the field of critical infrastructure monitoring. In SoFiN, three different use cases will be applied for the innovative flexible system to be developed and these include: 1) Monitor voltage power cables, 2) Supervision of telecommunication infrastructure and 3) Supervision of water supply network to detect water pipe leakage.

This post briefly introduces the use case on the supervision of water supply network:

Distributed acoustic sensing will be used to detect leaks via changing sound generated by water flow, but also FBG array-based supervision to detect temperature and strain variation caused by lost water combined with methods of machine learning to detect water loss at an early stage.
