Acquiring LiDAR at scale and being able to process the vast amount of data used to be a very costly and difficult challenge. IBM's Environmental Intelligence Suite with Vegetation Management is able to reduce costs of both collection and processing of LiDAR data and convert this information into simple and actionable KPIs allowing Utilities to focus on segments in greatest need of trimming across their entire enterprise.

Session Takeaways:

  • Geiger-Mode LiDAR – Delivering system-wide LiDAR coverage at scale -
  • Accurate insights, such as 3-D distance to wire, are required for utilities to trust AI driven insights, and transition away from cycle-based trimming practices
  • Implementing a flexible SaaS based solution that can output and integrate with other Utility systems provides both flexibility and a shorter time-to-value.
  • Additional Insights for the enterprise are available through LiDAR based analytics
