Bonjour! AI Flood Monitoring and Forecasting by Tenevia

Put aside fire. Lets’ talk about water.

Quiz: Is there any commonality between Tenevia and RoboticsCats? (Answer at the end of the article.)

I met William Castaings, CTO of Tenevia, recently at the UNEP Artificial Intelligent in Disaster Management webinar. He is a quick thinker and acts very fast!

Tenevia is created in 2012 and is headquartered in Meylan, France. The team put nearly ten years of scientific research into industrial use.  The company became the first to market an operational water measurement solution using video.

A video camera is a good contactless water measuring tool because it is not submerged and therefore the system is protected from floating debris.

Tenevia CamLevel sensor provides information on water level, and the CamFlow sensor measures surface velocity and calculates the flow of a free-surface flow. Tenevia provides flood forecasting and supervision solutions too.

I am very interested in Tenevia products because we have both wildfire and flooding problems in Northeast and Southeast Asia. Some of our LookOut wildfire detection customers are looking for early flood warning solutions. Since CamLevel/CamFlow and LookOut support Axis cameras, customers can use the same Axis devices to detect wildfires and floods. By using the same camera infrastructure, customer can significantly reduce the deployment time and cost! After the webinar, William and I discussed working together to help more customers combat natural disasters. It is cool!

By working together with the right tools, we can bring positive impacts on a global scale today.

I am lucky working in the ICT industry in the past 20 years to collaborate with colleagues, partners and customers to use technologies to change the way we work, live, play and learn! I have strong interests in cloud computing, AI and information security. “It is the technologies marry with liberal arts, marry with the humanities, that yields us the result that makes our hearts sing!”
