PipeInsights platform joins Azure Marketplace
May 19, 2023
Canadian infrastructure consulting firm AECOM’s PipeInsights digital platform, designed to accelerate sewer system inspections and improve subsequent maintenance and rehabilitation outcomes, is now available worldwide on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.
Developed by AECOM’s digital business, PipeInsights combines cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) and artificial intelligence (AI) to help enhance decision-making for sewer inspection and capital improvement programs. Now, it can benefit from Azure’s scalability and reliability for further application development, with streamlined deployment and management.
Users can upload sewer inspection footage to the cloud, perform quality assurance (QA) and quality control (QC) of defect coding, diagnose problems and select the most appropriate rehabilitation strategy, from anywhere. Advanced machine learning algorithms flag potential coding errors and can even automate the defect coding process entirely; once the codes are approved by the engineer, the platform will then suggest structural or operational rehabilitation strategies.
