Geometria’s successful participation in the European Utility Week conference

This year’s European Utility Week (EUW), one of the most significant conferences and exhibitions in the public utility sector, took place in Vienna on 6th–8th November. Our company also attended as an exhibitor with an own booth. The event attracted 12 thousand visitors from 100 countries as well as 600 exhibitors.

Geometria presented its newest innovational development at EUW which is an AR solution supporting the on-site work of utilities based on absolute position determination. The pioneer work that led to this innovation is reflected by the following fact, too: Altogether, 3 companies presented their AR systems, of which only Geometria’s solution is suitable for displaying and managing underground technical instruments (e.g. public utility networks) and related information.

The ones, who visited Geometria’s booth, got informed – besides the AR solution – about…
• Geometria’s risk-based tool that supports maintenance planning,
• our MIRTUSZ system that supports work control tasks, and
• the SAM (Smart Asset Management) maturity model developed by our company that supports the asset management of public utility networks.

Police incident solved thanks to MIRTUSZ Mobile application

A lucky accident happened when Geometria could actively take part in solving a police incident successfully. The case in details: during work, the field tablet of a public utility company’s on-site technician was stolen, on which the MIRTUSZ Mobile application was running. Since the programme constantly sends signs to the central system that contain the GPS coordinates of the tablet’s current location, we could keep track of the stolen device’s route. So we only needed to guide the police, and this way, both the tablet and the thief have turned up.

The reason why this incident took more than one and a half hour was that the appropriate information could only be found in the system’s central database, which wouldn’t have been possible without the great support of the system operators. After this, with the GPS location displayed in the Map Portal, the police officer could be directed on the phone to the wanted spot. However, the process was slow enough for the thief to change his location and to start the cat-and-mouse game again. Finally, when the thief settled, the police could catch him.

The story involves more lessons. On the one hand, the incident was solved thanks to the fast, smart and effective assistance of Geometria’s operators, as well as the MIRTUSZ Mobile and Map Portal applications operated by them. On the other hand, it needs to be considered if it was useful to make the coordinates stored in the system’s database retrievable and directly accessible to the authorized users if needed.
