AI Use Case

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.
