Innovate UK is the UK’s innovation agency and is part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and award funding investing in science and research.
Invenio Systems was founded in April 2015 to provide innovative solutions to the water industry. The company develops sophisticated new sensors, hardware, technology and mechanisms to collect infrastructure data that demonstrate significant reduction in water wastage and leakage, to better support investment decisions and guide routine operations
Stop.Check is designed to speed up the process and focus on locating unmetered properties with internal plumbing leaks and small underground supply pipe leaks that can't be found with current technologies. An Innovate UK Infrastructure competition industrial research grant will allow Invenio to work with industrial partners, including UKWIR, to scale the system and extend the technology to improve the current SoA combining sophisticated acoustic sensor capability with the existing sensors.
NCL are providing technical support to Invenio on both the hardware and software aspects of the project, working with data obtained from field technicians using prototype hardware.
The project is set to run to December 2018 – watch this space!
