Large, tall or otherwise difficult-to-reach buildings and structures such as wind turbines, solar plants or bridges need to be regularly inspected and checked for damage. Until now, this was often done with heavy equipment, such as lifting platforms or helicopters, or specially trained personnel, for example climbing teams for industrial inspections. Inspections have therefore often been time-consuming and expensive.
Drones can save time and costs. In addition, the risk for personnel is significantly reduced, as direct human intervention is no longer necessary in dangerous situations. By integrating high-resolution cameras or special sensors, high-quality images and data can be collected, quickly analysed and archived.
Thanks to automation, inspections can be regularly planned and carried out, making workflows much simpler. The use of special technology allows further application scenarios, e.g. in the field of thermography.
