Flood Resilience

Last week, Dr Amit Bhave and Toby Greenwood represented CMCL and the #CReDo project (led by Connected Places Catapult) at the New Civil Engineer Flood Resilience conference in London. The varied panel discussions and presentations delivered throughout the day painted a picture of an industry working tirelessly to ensure people across the country are protected from natural disasters.

Amit presented the CReDo project at the conference, showing how data is shared across water, power and telecoms networks and then brought together through a distributed architecture with flood data from tidal, fluvial and surface water flooding scenarios to demonstrate cascading failure risks across critical national infrastructure. The climate adaptation connected digital twin adopts a dynamic knowledge graph approach to enable cross-domain interoperability.

It’s been an honour for CMCL to receive a commendation and to be shortlisted among the three Innovation Accelerators.

Congratulations to The Environmental Protection Group Ltd for winning the Innovation Accelerator, and also great to see the work done by Radio Data Networks Limited with their IoT sensors.
Thank you to all the organisers of this impressive event.
