Transformative tech is enabling a lot more than just faster meter readings. The Internet of Things (IoT) – a fancier name for machine-to-machine communications and sensors – has transformed everything from street lights to water management to cost savings. Drones provide safer options for monitoring distribution lines and towers. GPS technology has become a major player in asset management. Artificial intelligence and augmented reality can help utilities envision before implementing, deploying or building.
