WRF Technology Scan Webcast: Innovative Monitoring Tools
The Water Research Foundation's Technology Scan webcasts are designed to help you become a Utility of the Future! This webcast focused on innovative monitoring tools.
Technology: 24x7 Thermal Monitoring for Critical Electrical Infrastructure, Exertherm
Attendees learned about Exertherm, a 24x7 real-time thermal monitoring solution for critical electrical assets. Loose joints or corrosion in these assets can lead to expensive failures, including explosion due to excess heat. Exertherm’s sensors, installed inside the assets, monitor critical points for heat rise and alert operators in advance of failure.

Technology: Landscape Scale Water Quality Insight using Satellite Imagery, Sensors, and AI, Gybe
Gybe combines high spatial resolution satellite imagery and high spectral resolution ground observations from Gybe's sensors. This allows water utilities, NGOs, and others to understand what is happening spatially across an entire water body at a low frequency (one new satellite image every few days), while filling in the time gaps between measurements with automated, autonomous sensor readings.
