ClearObject for Pipeline Inspection

Computer Vision, MSI, and AI data analysis to inspect pipelines and provide actionable analytics in hours, not weeks

Artificial Intelligence for Pipeline Inspection

Advances in technology make it easier to inspect pipelines than ever before, but that inspection data is only part of the process. Artificial Intelligence (AI) can analyze the data from thousands of feet of footage quickly and accurately. ClearObject’s highly-trained AI models can identify trouble areas that human inspectors are likely to miss. 

Improve the Pipe Inspection Process

Municipalities and other organizations are realizing the need for more complete, actionable analyses of pipelines under their jurisdiction. Leaks or breaks can be costly, cause interruptions in service, and damage the environment. 92% of major wastewater agencies in the US are subject to EPA consent decrees – they need help with their inspections and data analysis.

850 billion gallons of untreated wastewater and stormwater are illegally discharged per year

What is MSI?

Multi-Sensor Inspection combines sensor data to create comprehensive pipeline reports. MSI ensures the safety and integrity of pipelines, as it can detect defects that may be missed by a single inspection method.

High-tech Approach to Wastewater Inspections

The City of Fishers, IN is leading the way in infrastructure management and supporting local innovation with ClearVision—an Artificial Intelligence (AI) system created by Fishers-based tech leader ClearObject—to address the challenges of assessing wastewater utility infrastructure.

What are Soft Sensors?

Soft sensors use machine learning algorithms and other mathematical models to estimate process variables such as temperature, pressure, and flow rate based on other available data.

Vision AI for Pipes Frequently Asked Questions

ClearVision’s Vision AI is cloud-based artificial intelligence (AI) designed to process input from camera arrays quickly and accurately. The AI has been trained to identify pipe damage from roots, corrosion, and other causes and to assess the risk from that damage.

ClearVision is faster, safer, more accurate, and less expensive than traditional inspection methods. Pipeline risks can be identified in hours instead of after months of analysis.
