AIM: AI-Driven Asset Identification And Mapping


Our Solution

ULC Technologies’ AIM technology combines machine learning and a vehicle-mounted data collection system to autonomously generate an interactive visual database of utility poles and assets, create GIS mapping and conduct inspection of the overhead electric distribution system to improve reliability and asset management while lowering costs.

Real-Time Data Capture

Data is captured using high-resolution, vehicle mounted cameras and processed in near real-time.

machine learning for utility gis

Access Data from Anywhere

Location data, inspection data and asset images can be accessed from from a custom portal or integrated into your systems.

Mobile-Ready for Field Use

Field teams can access data from the field to help respond to issues or aid in storm response.

Key Benefits

Accurate Identification

Powered by a trained deep learning model, AIM processes visual data in real-time and identifies different utility assets with higher than 98% accuracy. Further use of the model will increase its accuracy.

Localization & Mapping

Using image processing and machine learning through a patent-pending technique, the system accurately measures the location of each identified asset and creates a global map of the inspected area. These results can also, be integrated into any GIS mapping system.

Automated Asset Inspection

Through our patent pending technology, AIM accurately measures the leaning angle of the poles and provides data analytics on the status of the network and its the integrity of the poles.

Customizable Platform

The development team at ULC Robotics can further train the deep learning models so that it can identify and inspect additional assets or integrate additional sensor data to accommodate the immediate needs of utility owners.

Reduce Demand on SMEs

AIM can accurately identify and inspect assets, eliminating the need for manual data review and reducing the burden on SMEs.

Cloud-Based Data Management

The raw data as well as identification and inspection results are stored on a secure cloud-based storage through which AIM user interface provides asset owners with analytical reports on the status of the network.
