Platform for 3D planning of future energy and linear network connected with augmeted reality for improved public participation

Project description

A powerful platform for improved power grid planning

Gilytics provides an interactive cloud-based platform using digital maps and satellite images to make planning of infrastructure faster, cheaper, more visual, interactive and socially acceptable. Planners can map and visualize in 2D-3D technical images, and environmental, regulatory, economic and social elements determining the most suitable pathway for new powerlines. Even non expert users can interactively calculate several scenarios in a few clicks. Virtual and augmented reality on mobiles will improve communication with authorities increasing acceptance of new infrastructure. This customizable tool can also be used to plan wind farms, roads, and railway. The software is based on university research and validated by grid operators. The solution has been recognised with first prize in the Elia Innovation Challenge. There are currently four customers using and paying for the software.
