Adapting Drones for Safer Sewer Surveys – Spring Knowledge Showcase

30th November 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

For many years, drones have been experimented with in the water sector. That’s why on Wednesday 30th November from 10:00-12:00 Spring and Scottish Water are excited to present the knowledge sharing event ‘Adapting Drones for Safer Sewer Surveys’ Scottish Water in partnership with Caledonia Water Alliance, Environmental Techniques and Good Friday Robotics, supported by Future Water, will share their recent use of drone and Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) scanning and measurement techniques. This recent project was able to reduce carbon emissions from sewer surveys by as much as 80%, whilst increasing the speed of the surveys, helping Scottish Water towards its target of reaching Net Zero Carbon emissions by 2040.

During this knowledge showcase you will learn about the projects background, the problem being solved, and learnings amassed throughout the duration of the project.
