UAV Power Line Inspection: photogrammetry + LiDAR

UAV Power Line Inspection: photogrammetry + LiDAR

Power transmission line inspection using aerial UAV data acquired with the DT18 long range drone, LiDAR data, and modeling of the lines themselves. The combination of UAV aerial data and LiDAR produced automated results greater than any we have seen. Delair-Tech has achieved 100% verification of anomaly detection in vegetation encroachment along the infrastructure’s corridor.
