AI Use Cases
Digitise analogue meter reading through computer vision
Updating and replacing legacy analogue meters with digital meters can be an expensive and complicated process. If instead IoT cameras are positioned to capture images of the read-outs and translate those to digital read-outs then the information can be captured automatically. This enables greater speed, frequency and consistency of data capture, along with reduced risk and cost from human checking - potentially enabling multiple other use cases.
Predict optimal location and specification in construction for power generation equipment
Optimise location and building specifications in construction of power generation equipment based on previous sites and other relevant data including visual imagery (e.g. from satellites or drones). Demand projection scenarios need to be fed in to the predictive model.
Predict energy demand trends based on data sources ranging from sensors to social media
Predict energy demand trends based on data sources ranging from sensors to social media. In a competitive market the more varied and unique the data sources accessed the more refined (if not always more accurate) the model can become.
