Utilities Turning Big Drone Data into Bigger Results

Using drones to collect inspection imagery on electrical infrastructure is a proven cost saver with ancillary benefits. However, the method in collecting this data varies due to the complex back end data management, bottlenecks, and challenges. Some operators omit collecting images of structures without anomalies, primarily due to the workflow in organizing data. Other operators choose to inspect the structures in real-time to limit the number of images needing post-flight categorization. Collecting inspection grade imagery of every structure, regardless of condition creates Big Data…but few utilities have discovered how to manage the data challenges on a large scale and turn into Big Results. In this session you will hear from McCook Public Power District, Southwest Public Power District and UAV Recon.
