The Case for Automated Vegetation Encroachment Detection

Current vegetation management workflows are excessively manual and involve surveying thousands of miles of network with field crews to identify and remediate vegetation encroaching on their distribution network. This is often tightly regulated by state and federal agencies and utilities are liable for damages incurred by poor vegetation management practices, besides being at risk for large lawsuits from both consumers and the state for fires and other large-scale disasters.

This session highlights how a technically advanced, automated, accurate and cost-effective solution for identifying vegetation encroachments can create unique value. Included will be a real-world success story completed for a major, Tier 1 Utilities provider.
