The lack of real-time information about pipes and cables underground has often led to disruption to the UK’s roads, and its population. While information is available about where this infrastructure is located underground, a delay in receiving this information can lead to further disruption and costs. Noticing a need for real-time availability, a consortium involving the University of Leeds came to create a new way to share and access information.
