Terra Drone, a leading industrial drone solutions provider in Japan and KDDI announce the launch of safe, fast, and cost-effective infrastructure inspection services using drones.
The solution uses drones with high-resolution cameras to monitor the structural health of industrial systems, such as, wind turbines, telecom and transmission steel towers, smokestacks, and bridges. The data management and report generation is further automated via Terra Inspection software, an online platform based on Terra UTM autonomous flight system and Terra Mapper 3D modeling system (SfM).
Under the solution offered by Terra Drone and KDDI, a drone will generate a 3D model of the heavy industrial asset by flying around the structure, whilst simultaneously determining which components should be inspected. This allows the drone to shoot the inspection points from optimal angles and range designated by the Terra Inspection software.
