WWT Webinar: Building A Smart Network With Yorkshire Water & Xylem

Event Date: 08/09/2020 11:00 am

Yorkshire Water will present its ambitious, year-long smart water network pilot which integrates data from both new and existing sources within the Xylem View platform.

Yorkshire Water is working with 15 vendors on the pilot which aims to support delivery of AMP7 Outcome Delivery Incentives related to leakage, per capita consumption, supply interruptions and customer satisfaction.

The View platform uses techniques including machine learning to cluster these disparate datasets, remove false positives and inform operational decision making.

This webinar will provide an overview of the pilot, discuss the challenges faced and the benefits already being realised within the first half of the project.
