Machine vision-based water safety service
The collaboration between Vincit and LeakLook started with improving the user experience and bringing the user interface to a level that meets the customers’ expectations. The aim was to make the deployment of the water safety service as easy as possible for the users, right from the start. The idea led to a product that everyone can easily install on top of their existing traditional water meter. The water safety service monitors the water meter readings using machine vision and transfers the consumption data securely to the user, who can read it on a desktop, mobile phone or tablet, 24/7. The customers are able to connect several sites to the service, for example, home and summer cottage. The service gives an alarm in the case of a leak or some other anomaly in water consumption.
Vincit has been involved in the development of nearly all things related to the operation and customer UI of the LeakLook product, from the integrated device system to the online platform used by the customers. With ready-made solutions proving to be unworkable, a bespoke AI was developed specifically for machine-read meters and trained for the task using freshly collected data.
