Autonomous drone inspection: AI enables, for the first time, customers to perform independent automated drone inspections. An international patent-protected technology for visual inspection and contactless lightning protection measurement for on- and offshore wind turbines.
Drones are increasingly being used as an alternative for the inspection of wind turbines. TOPseven’s AI takes the technology to the next level: The autonomous drone inspections document damages and identifies possible defects in the lightning protection system.
Independent use of fully autonomous drones by the customer. Due to the independent monitoring via AI the customer doesn’t require a specialized pilot for the autonomous drone inspection. Thus, the customer needs a minimum training to get started.
Industry standard reporting with complete and reproducible images.
The AI controlled camera delivers continues, high-quality images with seamless overlapping.
Autonomous drone based inspection only requires a single stop of the wind turbine. For the visual inspection of all blades and the tower, as well as the contactless measurement of the lightning protection, the wind turbine only needs to be stopped once.
Possible defects are being identified and located by special contactless sensors. In only a few minutes the TOPseven drone checks the lightning protection of the system. Special sensors detect the defect and can exactly localize the interruption.
