DIGITAL TWIN APPLICATIONS IN STORMWATER

Micah Strauss, Manager of Product Delivery, OptiRTC

ABSTRACT:

Actively controlled stormwater systems leverage Internet-of-things (IoT) communications technology to integrate site data (e.g., water level and discharge) from field-deployed environmental sensors with real-time weather forecast information to directly monitor and control stormwater storage and flows. Control decisions are supported by a digital twin model that looks at potential outcomes of given scenarios to make predictive decisions. In addition to providing direct control signals, the technology can be used in a decision support or O&M context. In this presentation, we will look into case studies demonstrating the value of this technology and discuss the readiness of communities to adopt digital solutions for infrastructure problems.

SPEAKER BIOS: 

Micah Strauss is the Manager of Product Delivery at OptiRTC where he engages with clients across the public and private sector around smart stormwater management.
