Eau de Paris

Solution based on Wonderware InTouch Uses AutoCAD and Video to Ensure Water Distribution in Paris

  • Frank Montiel, Head of the Regulation-CTM project in the Information Systems Dept., Eau de Paris.

    For 15 years, InTouch HMI has been supervising water distribution facilities that provide water to 4 million people in Paris. This role has gained strength over the years. For a few months now, InTouch has been animating a large block diagram displayed on a video wall and steering video surveillance applications. This is a move from classic supervision to hypervision.

  • Goals

    • Take into account video surveillance applications assigned to operators in charge of supervising water distribution facilities
    • Avoid overloading posted operators by multiplying the number of screens
    • Display a large image containing relevant information
  • Challenges

    • Integrate a detailed AutoCAD map of the water network into InTouch HMI
    • Animate the InTouch HMI variables in this plan
    • Automatically add video encrustations in the event of an intruder entering a site under surveillance
    • Project the animated image obtained onto a large-dimension video wall
  • Results

    • Operators have a global and detailed view of the installation, presented on a large dimension video wall
    • Operators can keep their traditional stations with a screen and can also use the video wall to show relevant views, back-to-back in relation to the large animated block diagram
    • User-friendly application, less stress for operators
