Development of a thermal detection of water leakage 

Challenges

4 Weeks – timeframe was very short: less than a month, to take care of the discovery phase, the technical analysis and, finally, the craft of the application from scratch.

Solution

Our client wants to provide a solution that uses their tablet and thermal sensor in order to identify water leakage in the field.

By pointing the tablet at the ground, the application (using the thermal sensors) would detect leakage in areas with water pipes and send this info together with the geo coordinates in the cloud.

A technician would be able to walk for miles a day with the tablet pointed to the ground and data would be gathered in the cloud infrastructure that will eventually get assembled into a detailed report.

The device accurately detects and reports water leakages:

  • Works in offline mode, generating sessions and submitting them as soon as internet is available
  • Easy to use sessions, you can start a new session right away or resume a previously paused session
  • Making use of Microsoft’s latest stack of technologies, UWP, .NET Core and cloud solutions
  • Customized settings

Methodology

Time being very short (1 month) and requirements fixed and clearly defined, Iterative Waterfall methodology with daily stand-ups was chosen.

Constrained by the short time available, and fixed requirements, we have worked with an Iterative Waterfall methodology, with daily stands-ups.

Main phases:

  1. Situation Analysis – identify business needs
  2. Process Analysis – definition of main workflows in the application
  3. Solution Design – define the most appropriate technical solution and acceptable limitations for proofing the concept of the application
  4. Estimation & Development planning using Gantt chart
  5. Solution development

Results

  • 66% Decrease of detection time for defects in the pipe infrastructure
  • 23% Decrease in structural damage to walls, floors and metal fittings due to water leakage
  • 50% Drop in detection costs for leakages
