Noteworthy specializes in fleet vehicle-mounted smart cameras + AI that help utilities evaluate the condition of the electric distribution grid at-scale while reducing operations and maintenance (O&M) costs.
Exponentially increasing demand, along with extreme weather, wildfires and aging infrastructure threaten the reliability, resiliency and safety of the grid. Currently, it is extremely challenging for utilities to know exactly where their distribution assets are, what’s on them and what condition they are in. Collecting and analyzing the data necessary to answer these questions is a slow, manual and costly process—on average, only 10% of poles are evaluated annually. This makes it difficult to adequately mitigate risks related to grid reliability, resiliency and safety.
Noteworthy's fleet vehicle-mounted cameras + AI enable utilities to collect and analyze data during routine vehicle operations. Noteworthy’s platform reduces O&M costs while increasing situational awareness of the distribution grid. By leveraging AI to perform data analysis, cost savings and efficiencies can be realized across a variety of reliability and resiliency use cases including, but not limited to: geolocation and asset inventory, asset inspection, vegetation management, storm response / damage assessment, joint use / attachment compliance and unregulated lighting assessments.
Noteworthy’s solution, Inspect, comprises two product offerings: Inspect Edge and Inspect Cloud.
Inspect Edge is a vehicle-mounted hardware and software solution featuring computer vision cameras and edge compute units. The system works together to detect, geolocate and capture high-resolution imagery of distribution assets.
Inspect Cloud is a cloud-based software platform that enables easy review and visualization of Edge-collected imagery and GIS data. Inspect Cloud also features proprietary AI models that can be run on imagery for detailed analysis of distribution assets including component inventory, defect detection, clearance measurements and more.
