Technology That Targets Leaks

Leaks are often a major problem in the water industry since having a leak means that a valuable resource: water is being wasted, and customers’ will not get their regular supply of potable water, as well as, the fact that the surrounding infrastructure will be hampered.

However, in a recent article by Laura Sanchez, in the editor’s blog of the Water Efficiency Magazine, she looks at a robot designed by mechanical engineer You Wu, which is able to detect leaks in pipes even before they have become large enough to be noticed by customers and employees within the water sector, thus ensuring that the problem can be solved sooner rather than later.

“Daisy” as the robot is called also links to mapping software which would allow engineers to know exactly where the leaks are, in order to not to make any costly mistakes.
