ILAM, A Next-Gen Answer For Utilities Companies Faced With Rising Operational Costs

Intelligent Linear Asset Monitoring

Every year field inspectors must battle dangerous and inaccessible terrains, as they set out to capture critical information about asset conditions and anomalies. As utilities companies spend billions of dollars on time intensive, human driven monitoring and remediation – they must also comply with an expensive and evolving regulatory landscape. With downtimes caused by natural calamities growing increasingly, T&D companies must find a way to power through the mounting margin pressures and ensure consistent, reliable service delivery to their end-customers.


Intelligent Linear Asset Monitoring (ILAM) solution by HCL Technologies is the IoT-led answer for a utilities industry pushed to the precipice of digital transformation. ILAM combines image analytics and deep learning for accurate real-time monitoring of asset condition, while drastically reducing turnaround times and operational costs.


ILAM taps into a deep learning platform, built on top of a GIS layer, rapidly processing satellite, drone and LIDAR imagery of linear assets and providing precise, real-time, actionable insights that remove errors, dependencies and dangers associated with human inspection while boosting regulatory compliances.
