Water systems are a necessary but often messy and costly part of city infrastructure. We’ve covered a wide range of innovations aimed at keeping city water flowing, such as porous concrete that reduces dangerous runoff. In addition to a rubber robot designed to detect leaks in pipes. Researchers at the University of Waterloo in Canada have now developed an alternative, affordable method of detecting leaking pipes. The team have developed a system that combines AI algorithms with an acoustic sensor. The sensors are trained to listen to the sound of water flowing through a pipe. The AI algorithms are then…
