Submerged structural inspections made easy with Mini ROVs and Submersible Pipe Crawlers

Inspections are a crucial part of planning asset rehabilitation and maintenance. Whether you manage a nuclear power plant, hydroelectric dam, petrochemical plant or other large, complex network of structures, it is likely that you have had to call on divers, confined space professionals and HAZMAT specialists. Utilizing robotics to perform inspection tasks greatly reduces the risk of performing the inspection and increases the convenience if you own the tool yourself. Many companies are now opting to create their own unmanned systems teams. Part of those unmanned systems groups are mini ROVs and pipe crawlers; something global leader Deep Trekker understands in great detail. With this presentation, we will show the real-world applications where robotics have helped these utilities and companies save time and money.

Mapping the Underground with PointMan and Trimble

PointMan is a patented mobile mapping software application that captures, records, and displays the precise location and the associated metadata to subsurface and surface infrastructure. PointMan captures mission critical data that includes type, depth, accuracy, depth of cover, and precise geospatial location. PointMan can also create and bind forms, sketches, and photos to any point, line, or polygon. PointMan integrates seamlessly with the Trimble GPS/GNSS receivers as well as cable & pipe locate equipment. Simply capture a depth and PointMan does the rest!

A True Game Changer for Mapping Sub-foot Assets

Will explore customer case studies on how the Trimble MX7 mobile mapping workflow has changed asset mapping forever! Capturing 360-degree photos (plus a photo straight up) from a moving vehicle (street or highway speeds) that allows any asset that can be seen in the photo to be extracted with GNSS accuracy of 4” to 12”, plus measure feature attributes: height, width/length, clearance, slope, etc to 1-2cm. One data set can be shared across multiple departments/projects standardizing many workflows, plus creating historical visual layers. Case studies will include: - City wide Broadband project – pre/post construction to collect/compare all existing conditions. - Transit stop and station inventory project – 2,900 bus stops and 40 rail stations - Visual and historical observation of over 1,000 miles of forest burn area in one county. - A counties first GIS including 911 addressing, road centerlines, signs, poles, bridges, culverts and so much more. Plus, customer stories on the next gen MX9 adding LiDAR (up to 2M points per second) and 3mm precision to the photogrammetry data.

Multiple Options for Automating GIS Workflows

An endless challenge that most GIS data managers face is sustaining a database that reflects the current state of their real-world assets as these assets evolve over time. Automation can be a key component for managing data, analyzing changes, sharing results, and otherwise taking the time out of repetitive tasks. In this session you will be introduced to ModelBuilder, ArcGIS Pro Tasks, and ArcGIS Notebooks as we demonstrate ways to implement these tools into your GIS workplan.

Using risk and physical condition to develop asset management strategy

Providing safe, sustainable water, wastewater and storm water solutions is a critical priority for community leaders, utility managers & a reasonable expectation of citizens. Many utilities rely solely on age based deterioration to forecast asset condition and replacement strategies. This session will discuss best business practices for incorporating risk and physical condition into your asset maintenance strategy. Risk is defined as Probability of Failure and Criticality of Failure. Maintenance workers can score their assets based on these risk factors to better understand potential impact.
