Italy-headquartered subsurface investigation solutions firm IDS GeoRadar, which is owned by Swedish industrial technology developer Hexagon, has launched an AI-based software monitoring tool for intelligent support of radar data interpretation.
IDS GeoRadar said the new tool, called Ai.DA, uses AI with smart radar data processing to support geotechnical professionals in decision-making.
Ai.DA, through the use of AI algorithms, aims to simplify the identification of movements from possible residual noise by evaluating the consistency of the detected movement trend with typical slope instabilities behaviours and models.
Ai.DA is an intelligent support to radar data interpretation and is fully integrated with Guardian, IDS GeoRadar's powerful and user-friendly software to manage slope stability risks in both open pit mining operations and natural geo-hazards. Guardian's processed radar data is automatically pushed to Ai.DA providing an additional smart processing layer that highlights quick moving areas through an intuitive interface with a clear and detailed view on a 3D map.
Ai.DA can provide simultaneous data processing of radar data originating from one to six different radars and
highlights timely localized and quick moving areas, which are often difficult to manage, for improved decision-making.
"With Ai.DA, we are pioneering the use of Artificial Intelligence in slope stability monitoring, and we commit to providing customers with state-of-the-art technology solutions to support radar data interpretation," said Angela Patera, Guardian Product Owner at IDS GeoRadar. "Interpreting the big amount of available data is the new challenge for geotechnical engineers and Ai.DA represents a valuable support to this demanding task."
