The Living Digital Twin doesn’t just map your assets, it maps the living world it is embedded in.
Map every branch and twig and use our growth and species detection algorithms to profile encroachment risk to enhance your vegetation management regime.
Every component counts. Capture, understand and inspect each one in Sharper CORE.
Capture your operational reality and interrogate it to identify risks ahead of time and intelligently prioritize your inspection and asset management programs.
Benefits and Features
What makes the Living Digital Twin built into Sharper CORE so unique? And why does it matter for transmission and distribution (T&D) utilities around the world?
A static digital twin has an expiration date, at which point it is not much more than an expensive map. Ours are dynamic and easily updated manually or using automated drone inspection.
Our AI and machine learning experts are among the best in the world and have developed an ever-expanding library of utility-specific AI algorithms. No other utility digital twin comes close.
You don’t have to use our data collection services to benefit from Sharper CORE. We can easily integrate with any quality proprietary or third-party data source to get the most out of the resources you have.
Sharper CORE is hosted by our partner, Amazon Web Services, ensuring industry-leading performance, uptime, and security, while easing integration and boosting return on investment. Access your Living Digital Twin anytime, from anywhere.
No two utilities are alike, and off-the-shelf often means off-the-pace. Our holistic approach adapts to each utility’s requirements, making sure to integrate with their existing processes and solutions.
Next, choose the right data collection methods for your projects and mission. Is a drone best suited to the task, or a helicopter? What cameras, sensors and software are needed for the payload? Got your own data? We can use that too.
Flow your data into the Sharper CORE platform, or we can help collect it with our proprietary Heliscope 2.6 Consolidated Linear Inspection (CLI) hardware. With initial data in place, we can utilize our automated detailed inspection capabilities to collect specific data, locate components and defects, and increase accuracy, safety and efficiency.
Data is then visualized, inspected, and prioritized in the Sharper CORE Living Digital Twin, offering at-a-glance insight designed with utilities in mind. Users are empowered with anytime cloud-based access to a rich Living Digital Twin for inspections, asset and vegetation management, and forecasting.
Users can use the Living Digital Twin to carry out detailed use-case specific inspections, such as for vegetation and asset management. For example, individual trees can be assessed, and species identified to detect encroachment risks, while each and every component can be inspected at a granular level.
Sharper CORE’s built-in AI algorithms enable utilities to look ahead and detect critical hazards, automate LiDAR segmentation, pinpoint vegetation growth encroachment and analyze asset deterioration, conductor thermodynamic simulations, high risk and dangerous crossing analysis and more.
Sharper CORE makes it easy to generate and send and track prioritized, actionable work orders that account for critical factors such as local regulations, budged, risk assessments, schedules and allocation of work – direct from Sharper CORE to stakeholders in the field.
The Sharper Difference
Protect your assets, reputation, bottom-line and the communities you serve through sharper insights.
With a Sharper CORE Living Digital Twin, you can save money and resources on more intelligent inspection, maintenance and vegetation management programs, while reducing risk of failures or safety incidents.
