Understanding the Challenge

Our client needed an AI solution partner to build an application that can detect the anomalies in the images of the solar panel farms that are uploaded on their customer portal.


Folio3 AI built an AI-powered application for the client that processes the images sent by our client’s customer portal. The AI model integrated by Folio3 AI is fine-tuned to detect and identify anomalies in uploaded thermal images according to the client’s use cases.

Customized AI model

The algorithm was fine-tuned, trained, and customized according to the client data for specific data outputs. The model processes images uploaded on the client’s portal and provides output according to the AI-trained model.

Maximized Accuracy
The model is capable of excluding any images detected outside the solar panel boundary to provide accurate results regardless of environmental factors that could compromise the model


The Folio3 AI-built solar panel inspection solutions were deployed on the client’s existing platform with more than 90% model accuracy.
