product is a geolocated file with multiple GNSS layers (with DGPS – 1”

The first layer is called Dig/No dig, and generates a colored-coded map, along with images of the pipes underground. In the green
zone – the AI algorithms are certain there are no utilities (up to a
certain depth, which is outputted by the algorithms). In the red zone –
there is a high probability of utilities – no dig zone. The yellow zone
is where the algorithms outputted a lower level of certainty, meaning it’s an
area recommended for further investigation and potholing.
Exodigo’s Non-Intrusive Mapping solution
discovered all the lines at the demo site
(checked with potholes).
The key is combining everything possible
in order to create a single multi-sensing solution.
The next layer includes the depth of utilities (if
successfully calculated by the AI) and physical properties: Conductive
material, metallic material or none (plastic, etc.). Each depth is given its
own accuracy. Accuracies range from 5” to 20”, depending on the terrain,
congestion, background noise, and utility type. The AI calculates its accuracy
for every single line and outputs it in the layers.
Since the file
and layers are 3D, it’s possible to display it in 3D (along with the
geolocated LIDAR scan) in AutoCAD, BIM,
Google Earth, VR\AR software, or any other 3D visualization software.
