Power grid inspection using drone technology and artificial intelligence (AI) for fault detection
The use of traditional methods for collecting data on electricity pylons in the utility sector could be coming to an end. Methods such as helicopters and human inspection can be very expensive, slow, dangerous, timely, difficult to capture and analyse. Rather than a manually inspecting each pylon, the use of drone technology and AI allows for targeted manual inspection drastically reducing costs, speeding up the inspection process and improving safety. Our interactive cloud based technology can be used to map and inspect each pylon/asset providing information on its location and visual condition. It speeds up the visual analysis of pylons and we can use Artificial Intelligence (AI) for fault detection.
