A Vision of Success

There are more than 2 million miles of pipeline in the United States alone, and a primary cause of damages or ruptures to these lines is third party intrusion.

So who does the Pipeline Research Council International ask for assistance to protect the lines? Well, they asked NASA first. When a viable solution wasn’t reached, PRCI came to the University of Dayton Vision Lab and got the answers they needed.

The Vision Lab created a real-time, cost-effective solution to pipeline intrusion risks by developing specific algorithms for visibility improvement, semantic segmentation and part-based object recognition.

The Pipeline Intrusion Detection Program uses the algorithms in tandem with existing technology to isolate problems and send information — including risk priority, photos of the actual hazard and pinpoint directions — to responsible parties.
