Siemens Offers Smart Power Line Inspections with AI and UAVs08 November 2018 / by Siemens AG (author) / Berlin, Munich
SIEAERO smart analytics software is utilizing artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to store, manage and analyze all data in one integrated software system. To reduce the needed amount of flights and inspection efforts drastically, SIEAERO is using a unique high-resolution multi-sensor-system that can record all needed data in one go.
Compared to conventional overhead line inspection, SIEAERO service is fully automated, faster and more precise. Siemens has been working closely with German and Austrian transmission system operators (TSO) TenneT and APG on the development of SIEAERO overhead line inspection service since 2016.
With both TSOs Siemens has worked on test cases and the validation of a comprehensive inspection approach.
