Many utilities are finding cost savings by making use of UAVs for transmission or distribution lines periodic inspections. Drones have also been used to detecting issues before they turn into problems for wind turbines inspection work, and helps to keep inspection crews on the ground. Being able to utilize software and algorithms that will be able to identify broken insulators or strands that are frayed opens up an entirely new value proposition, and the current and future capabilities of the technology will be explored in this session.
