NEWS ABOUT THE INNOVATION PROJECT
Ministry of Economics supports project with 4.8 million euros
The innovative goals of the TOPseven project are the development of a new autonomously flying drone with AI-based and GPS-independent control as well as an AI-based automatic analysis of the enormous amounts of data for the automatic detection of structural abnormalities. The project is funded with 4.8 million euros by the state of Lower Saxony.
Economics Minister Dr. Bernd Althusmann personally justified this unusually high amount of funding when handing over the notification: The project pursues the drone-supported infrastructure analysis of bridges, ships and wind turbines, which is a “highly innovative approach”, says Althusmann.
