We’ve got the research to prove it
At DWS, our goal has always been to help utilities find the answers to their toughest challenges. Working closely with researchers at the University of Waterloo and the University of California, Los Angeles, we have refined hydrant.AI’s ability to autonomously deploy and detect anomalies in all types of networks and pipe materials – including PVC.
