Asset Inspections

A visual inspection is exactly what it sounds like: a careful, thorough review with the naked eye of every single part of an asset. In many instances, a drone inspection will be a visual inspection, with the drone’s camera acting as the inspector’s eyes. Using a drone, visual data is collected and then reviewed in detail later by the inspector (some review is done on the spot, too, but the thorough inspection after data is collected represents the bulk of the visual inspection work). With the use of artificial intelligence it can even be easier. Artificial intelligence and drones are a match made in tech heaven. Artificial intelligence (AI) is wide-ranging branch of computer science concerned with building smart machines capable of performing tasks that typically require human intelligence. AI is an interdisciplinary science with multiple approaches, but advancements in machine learning and deep learning are creating a paradigm shift in virtually every sector of the tech industry. 



  • no more climbing on ladders!
  • Inspections can be made without disruption of service, without costly crane operations
  • It is  possible for inspection crews to capture thousands of precisely tagged images of the infrastructure: holistic picture
  • We can automatically generate lists of places where repairs are needed: flexible criteria management and efficient action plans.
  • Safer work environment for inspection crews: risk of accidents substantially decreased
  • Better planning of repairs: first time right and adequate action plans based on priority decisions
  • Better investment analysis and lifetime assessment: from reactive maintenance via proactive maintenance to predictive maintenance
  • Lead time and costs of inspection rounds reduced by 80%
