Vyntelligence Launches Industry-First Multimodal AI-First Solutions to Accelerate Safe Streetworks, Addressing National Skills Shortage in the Race to Net Zero

London, UK – Vyntelligence announces the industry-first multimodal AI solution aimed at transforming the safety and efficiency of street works. The new technology, powered by advanced Vyn® Computer vision and Vyn® Gen AI, will be showcased at Utility Week Live.

In the UK, around 2.2 million streetworks and roadworks activities occur annually across various sectors. With network modernisation and upgrades to meet Net Zero requirements, these are slated to grow over the next few years.  These activities necessitate a combination of resources including skilled labour, specialised equipment and regular safety and compliance training. Companies failing to comply with safety regulations can face substantial fines, with serious breaches resulting in penalties up to £5,000 per incident​. In 2022-2023, non-compliance across sectors led to fines totaling £24 million. 
As the industry braces itself for ambitious Net Zero targets and continues to grapple with the problem of ageing workforce and skills shortage, the Vyn® Smart Streetworks solution will empower more contractors and subcontractors to deliver high-quality work in the field without additional field oversight, with remote experts avoiding multiple site visits. Additionally, Faster streetworks enable faster access for end consumers, thereby improving CSAT scores for Utility’s clients.

The Vyn® Smart Streetworks solution uses Vyntelligence’s patented Video and Gen AI powered technology to improve compliance and operational efficiency for utilities. With deep industry know-how and ethically sourced data from passive infrastructure works (civil, electrical, mechanical and safety), Vyn® AI is uniquely positioned to drive faster decision intelligence, with prompt anomaly detection and safety risk predictions. Deployed in secure localised virtual environments, the Vyn Smart Streetworks solution guarantees no data leakage and full adherence to data protection and security requirements, ensuring safety for all stakeholders.

Leaders in the gas industry such as Cadent Gas and in the water industry such as Northumbrian Water Group and Severn Trent are already seeing benefits such as:

  • Improving onsite safety with Vyn® AI-powered alerts to site users
  • Elimination of the need for supervisory oversight enabling unique remote assurance with a lean team of experts
  • 85% reduction in streetworks non-compliance fines 
  • 100% audit coverage without additional hiring of experts

Vyntelligence invites attendees of Utility Week Live to visit their stand J58 to see this industry-first multimodal AI technology in action.
