Artificial Intelligence (AI) transforms sewer inspections, replacing tedious CCTV reviews with efficient machine learning algorithms. This revolution accelerates data processes and enhances defect coding, reducing costs for infrastructure owners. B&N's AI, incorporating GIS, creates a digital twin of the sewer system, enabling precise mapping for informed decision-making.

By attending this session, participants will be able to explain how artificial intelligence can augment an operator’s ability to apply PACP coding quickly, accurately, and consistently to sewer pipe defects, assess the maintenance and repair benefits of integrating pipe defects into an existing GIS mapping system and evaluate the long-term advantages of consistent coding by providing repeatable results, enabling a fair analysis of the complete sewer network.
