Watchtower Robotics

Today’s water distribution systems lose an average of 20 percent of clean water due to leaks. Moreover, leaks are often found too late, after they have already caused sink holes and other serious structural damage to buildings and roads. At WatchTower Robotics (previously Pipeguard at MIT), we offer a unique robotic solution to find leaks early, many months before they become big problems. Thus, we can prevent the loss of billions of gallons of water annually and protect infrastructure.
WatchTower uses robots to help water pipe operators find leaks, save water, and protect infrastructure.
