A project led by the University of Vermont and the University of Tennessee Chattanooga is developing the ability to "see" underground pipes though augmented reality. The project has just appeared in Science360 News and more information is available at UVM Today.
The ongoing research project, “Underground Infrastructure Sensing,” recently won a Smart 50 Award from a coalition that includes Smart Cities Connect, the Smart Cities Connect Foundation and US Ignite honoring the 50 “most transformative smart projects each year."
The technology, which is being supported by two National Science Foundation grants and one from U.S. Ignite, was showcased in a featured demo at the Smart Cities Connect national conference in Kansas City on March 29.
BTV Ignite is working closely with UVM colleagues, including professor Dryver Huston, to promote and support this initiative. This project is just another example of Burlington and Vermont leveraging our strong research, digital, and community assets to drive innovation.
