PIPE AI was created to automate manual tasks and processes related to asset management in the Engineering and Construction industry. The solution, built by PEAK AI, blends 50 years of engineering excellence with Automation and AI expertise.
We aim to drive operational excellence by developing AI solutions that improve water asset management processes while reducing total inspection costs.
Our goal is for organisations to save on maintenance and repair bills and offer an uninterrupted water supply to consumers.
HOW IT BEGAN
Engineering firms, construction companies and local authorities all engage individuals to spend hours and days reviewing CCTV footage from newly constructed or ageing stormwater drainage and sewerage / wastewater pipelines for obstructions or defects.
When one pipe footage takes on average 15 minutes to be reviewed by one person and the process needs to be done multiple times for quality assurance, we knew this tedious, time intensive task was costly and ripe for change.
PIPE AI was created to remove the need for human checking and reviewing of CCTV footage. By using AI to identify defects, organisations maintain their infrastructure up to the required standards, optimise pipe maintenance schedules and reduce inspection costs while transferring and upskilling their employees to higher value, more fulfilling jobs.
