Results are available in a webinar and a publication
Researchers have used planes and drones equipped with multispectral and infrared cameras to detect water losses in pipes in rural areas. The data has been analysed through a pioneering method combining the measure of the temperature of the surface and the vegetation cover fraction
on 16 JUNE 2020, in collaboration with the ICT4water Cluster Annual Meeting 2020, WADI organises its final event
16 June 2020, organised by EASME
Global warming has brought about a more responsible attitude towards water consumption. A cutting edge airborne technology can save water lost through leaks while reducing energy use and carbon emissions
How super-resolution images from a drone's eye can help to find water leaks
Harmonising regulations regarding drone manufacturing, safety and operation in the EU is a first step toward creating a true service market. The removal of uncertainty is being welcomed by members of the industry who are hopeful that these rules will set the standard for global drone aviation
IGARSS 2019 in Yokohama, Japan
ICT4Water cluster annual event gathered nearly 100 professionals from the smart water community to work together on the digital transformation of the water sector.
ONERA will present a scientific paper in the 39th annual IGARSS Symposium
WADI’s methodology to be presented at the ICCS Conference
In some European countries half of the water flowing in the supply system gets lost because of the difficulties experienced by water utilities to monitor leaks in their networks. A new airborne detection method is now tested in France and Portugal
The paper presented at the 13th International Hydroinformatics Conference (HIC2018) is available for download.
Developing advanced digital water treatment solutions will contribute dramatically to achieve good status of European water bodies.
As spring slowly peeped out while snow still covered the cherry flowers in SCP’s headquarters, the WADI project’s consortium planned the activities of the next months and explored the area where the airborne water leak detection method will be tested this summer
On March 7th, 2018 WADI’s partners EDIA and LNEC headed off to Evora, Portugal, to present a paper on the WADI project
Manned and unmanned aerial platforms equipped with remote sensing cameras may be used in the near future for a faster survey of the water networks
Data sets from WADI airborne campaigns have been processed, resulting in a series of maps of different indicators that are believed to reveal the presence of water (water indices).
The 4th EIP Water Conference was hosted at the Alfândega Porto Congress Centre by the Municipality of Porto, Portugal and powered by the European Innovation Partnership on Water (abbreviated to “EIP Water”), supported by the European Commission and the government of Portugal.
Fluid Handling International spoke to Yolande Louvet, the initiator of the WADI project.
The first test phase of the WADI project has been successfully completed
African and European researchers are employing high-tech water management research methods to help low-tech South African smallholders improve food security.
A wide range of technologies deal with water leaks. But the most recent innovative solutions aim to be far more effective than any other prior technologies.
WADI’s kick-off meeting took place on 18th-19th October 2016. 12 partners working together on innovative solutions to reduce water losses and decrease energy consumption via optical remote sensing applied on aerial platforms.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement No. 689239
