Event description


Assessing the Underworld is nearing maturity of its five-year programme. We would like to take this opportunity to update you on progress in the development of sensor technologies – GPR, vibro-acoustics, low-frequency electromagnetics, ground and in-pipe sensors (mounted on robots) – this research being largely complete. We will present the results of both laboratory experiments and field trials.

In addition, we will update you on developments of the Decision Support System –this being the most important outcome of the project since it integrates all of the advances and translates them into practitioner guidance. The bespoke Streetworks Sustainability Assessment Framework will be presented and used to highlight the true costs of utility strikes, which has been the subject of parallel research and will also be reported.

The event is also an opportunity for networking, exhibiting and helping shape the final research and, importantly, how it can be translated into practical advances
