    AI Drone Solar Panel Inspection FAQs

    AI enables drones to do more than just capture images or videos captured with the mounted camera. With AI, drones can now perceive and identify areas enabling them to map areas, track objects, detect anomalies, and provide analytical reports.

    Once the visual data is captured by the drone, the AI-powered software analyzes the footage/images to identify specific characteristics like objects, anomalies, or other factors like temperature ranges and after crunching that data presents it in insightful reports. Thereby, greatly reducing the time and effort required by conducting a manual inspection.

    For drone surveying, accuracy can mean different things. Like, for conventional photogrammetric tech it can be higher resolution images as those are used to create 3D planes. Whereas advanced LiDAR technology might offer the same pixel sizes but offers a lot more useful data of topological characteristics. So, the technology being deployed goes a long way in determining the accuracy of the surveys.
