Title:  Automating Unmanned Aerial Systems Inspection Operations using 3D Power Line Models

 

Description: Advances in drone technology have made UAS utility inspection work far more routine, but there are still challenges to overcome. A primary concern is the amount of time and skill required to successfully inspect utility assets using current unmanned aerial technology. Perhaps an even greater challenge is the effort required to analyze and package this enormous volume of data into useful information for utility customers. This presentation explores the hardware and software tools that are being developed to automate both UAS flight operations as well as the analysis of inspection assets after the field work has been completed
