DEWA’s R&D Centre registers its 8th patent for a device that positions geographical areas with high accuracy

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA)’s Research and Development Centre has registered its eighth patent for a device that positions and surveys geographical areas, based on data it collects on-site using advanced sensors. The device then processes the data using real-time kinematic (RTK) processing techniques. The device works with a smart device developed by the R&D Centre to read the updated coordinates in a few seconds using a smart app. This ensures higher accuracy for ground cable locations, saves time and effort, reduces manpower, and protects DEWA’s assets.
