Mobile Acoustic Sensing to Strategically Detect Leaks

Project Member(s): Valls Miro, J.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Sydney Water Corporation
Sydney Water Corporation

Start year: 2020

Summary: Complementary use of acoustic sensing together with analytics is proposed to improve SWC's active leakage detection process. Approval has been secured to procure 40 acoustic sensors for $115,000 and engage the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) for $80,000 to plan, analyse and assess leakage.
