Maximize Inspection Efficiency with AI

Generally, there are a lot of safety hazards that have to be considered when carrying out inspections on wind turbines, therefore it usually requires a lot of time and expert resources. In comparison with conventional inspection procedures, with AI you can take in video streams from drone-mounted or other cameras to easily detect damage, structural inconsistencies, and signs of excessive wear.

Benefits

AI-powered inspections processes deliver a significant cost and speed advantage for wind turbine farms and operations. Conventionally, inspections require a manual check-up conducted by experts,  looking at each turbine part and noting issues and faults which takes up a lot of time and costs a lot as well. 

With AI-powered inspection, these costs can be minimized with even faster inspections that remove human error from the process as well. You can conduct regular inspections to stay on top of equipment health and get even better support for warranty claims.

AI Wind Turbine Inspection FAQs

How is AI used in drones?

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.

How are drones used for inspections?

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.

Are drone surveys accurate?

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.
