There is an urgent need for utility companies to find the right AI-based solution for Utility Vegetation Management. Our product has helped power utilities reduce 20% in their vegetation management costs while improving reliability by 15%
SAN ANTONIO (PRWEB) January 27, 2020
San Francisco Bay Area-based technology company AiDash is set to launch its new product for the power utility industry — the AiDash Intelligent Vegetation Management System (IVMS), that combines high-resolution multispectral satellite data and AI technology to provide real-time actionable insights and automates Vegetation Management operations for power utilities. This is the first in AiDash’s line of disruptive products that aim to transform asset management and operations for core industries with geographically distributed assets.
“There is an urgent need for utility companies to find the right AI-based solution for Utility Vegetation Management. Our product has helped power utilities reduce 20% in their vegetation management costs while improving reliability by 15%” said Abhishek Vinod Singh, CEO of AiDash.
“We have a deep understanding of the utility industry and offer a SaaS product that addresses an age-old industry pain point. IVMS helps curb down instances of avoidable loss, whether it’s wildfires or power outages caused by inefficient vegetation management”, Abhishek added.
IVMS is built on the AiDash Platform that utilizes geospatial information from high-resolution multispectral satellite imagery combined with ground data to effectively plan trim cycle and hazard tree management. The app detects clearance, dimensions, species and geo-location of vegetation growing alongside the Right of Way of T&D networks. The system AI then calculates the impact of not clearing the vegetation hazard and probability score of potential disruption, thus allowing ground operators to work in a prioritized and intelligent manner.
The app also provides a platform for contractor bidding, where vendors associated with the utility company can bid for tasks based on line miles. Task completion is reported through the app, which uses satellite imagery to verify and audit completion. The system ensures seamless interaction between the organization, its vendors and the AI-based platform to ensure efficient vegetation management operations.
AiDash is launching IVMS at DistribuTech 2020, a leading utility industry transmission and distribution conference and exhibition. The event will take place at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, TX, from January 28 to January 30, 2020. Attendees can meet the AiDash team at Booth #1257 for a live demo.
They can also attend a session titled “Can AI cut costs and reduce the risks of wildfires and power outages?” at 2 PM on January 28 at Knowledge Hub, Innovative & Emerging Technologies room #1567. This session will be jointly addressed by Rahul Saxena, CTO, AiDash and Gary Huntley, Director, Field Services, Entergy Services Inc.
