Advances in digital technology have upended traditional approaches to geotechnical monitoring across every sector—oil and gas, mining, infrastructure, dams, and levees, and more. Advances in monitoring technology have had wide-ranging impacts, from the design of instrumentation sensor components to wireless data acquisition and connectivity to space-based satellite imagery.

In this on-demand webinar, a panel of experts explore the impact of digital technologies on geotechnical monitoring. They review how traditional methods of measuring field performance with analog-based sensors evolved with digital sensors. They consider future trends in the industry—wireless data connectivity led by the industrial internet of things (IIot) and the possible emergence of digital twin technology—to see how and if these tech solutions have a role to play in critical asset management and risk mitigation strategies. Learn how low-power digital gateways and node data loggers improve monitoring strategies with automated wireless data connectivity to increase access to more relevant and actionable data, especially when used with ground deformation mapping techniques like Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR).

Join 3vGeomatics' Parwant Ghuman, Terra Insights' James Saunders, and RST Instruments' Pierre Choquet for this on-demand webinar that examines how automated, wireless remote monitoring and data delivery solutions are upending traditional approaches to risk mitigation and what you can learn from it.


Key takeaways from this webinar:  

  • How remote and space-based monitoring can provide current and past data about your project site
  • Learn what smart monitoring means from a panel of experts
  • Why a unified approach to monitoring strategies can save project budgets
  • An overview of current and future trends in risk mitigation
