Hepta Airborne’s innovations always focus on payloads to ensure that the drones cover the required inspection areas and succeed in efficient data gathering.
The company currently uses various payloads – including optical RGB photos, infrared, LiDAR, and CORONA – to gather the data required by grid operators.
Traditional inspection techniques are typically extremely time-consuming and labor-intensive. The ground-based method is a massive workload and can be somewhat hazardous for the staff. So what’s the alternative? Look up to the sky!
The uBird platform, used for automating power line and utility inspection and analysis is now open for sign up for all of those who manage grid inspections. Join other professional utility managers and inspectors by digitizing your grid!
In order to assess the condition of an electricity network, they must be constantly monitored and inspected. Inaccurate and slowly collected data prompted the Hepta Airborne team to look for a solution that would make the inspection faster, more precise, and less expensive.
To find out how AI impacts the utility inspection process in 2021, we interviewed Toomas Välja, the VP of Sales, at Hepta Airborne. A company that digitizes and automates the inspection of power lines and other infrastructure, through the use of drones and machine learning.
