One of the nation's largest utilities is supporting the work of the University of Dayton Vision Lab to monitor more than 2 million miles of pipelines that affect virtually every community in the U.S. California-based Pacific Gas & Electric has given the Vision Lab $254,362 to help researchers continue to develop an automated monitoring system for change detection in buildings on pipeline corridors. The new system will automatically detect changes near pipeline right of ways because of construction and relay information to pipeline operators and first responders.
