Diagostics of wastewater system
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 300 000|
|Project duration||June 2018 - December 2018|
Purpose and goal
Development of advanced system for detecting inflow to the sewers using Internet of things. Goals: 1. Demonstrate a method for detection of inflow to the sewers. 2. Develop a service for automatically processing large amounts of data. Compliance: The method has been successfully demonstrated for a potential customer. Field work is efficient and scalable to apply to large areas. A service for detection of inflow into the sewers will be available to water and sewer companies during the spring 2019.
Expected results and effects
A service for detection of inflow into the sewers will be available to water and sewer companies during the spring 2019. Water and sewer companies will have improved possibilites for identifying inflow to the sewers and immediate improvements in their strategic maintenance planning. In the long term this will lead to more efficient sewage plants. Preemptive mapping of the technical condition of the sewers enables the company to tag along on digging projects of other parties in the municipality, saving resources for all involved.
Planned approach and implementation
A pilot installation was succesfully implemented during the autumn 2018 together with a sewage company. A service for automatically detecting inflow has been developed. Having a close partnership with a sewage company, wireless data transmission, and a strong development focus has resulted in an agile process in which the projects goals have been met.
