Environmental monitoring of electric transmission cables to improve and predict operational performance and to aid staff and public safety

KothiNet have created an IoT monitoring system and ‘digital twin’ for monitoring high power electric transmission cables.  This improves asset and staff productivity and performance by continuous monitoring of cable environmental conditions. Plus, the system aids staff and public safety by allowing the network to be managed in real time to minimise operating risks.

This presentation shows people who are responsible for infrastructure asset management that IoT and machine learning technologies delivers real benefits of greater reliability, longevity and safety.
