Today’s client requirements, over and above traditional automation needs, are increasingly looking for technology elements such as UAVs/Robotic Vehicles, Computer Vision, Video processing and Edge Computing to make the current processes faster, safer & cost effective to achieve part of what human do today. An ‘Adaptive Systems’ approach would be essential to cater to such requirements wherein multiple agents need to be orchestrated and need to adapt in real-time to real-world conditions.
The Inspection Management System periodically deploys multiple Drones/UAVs. HD imagery from the drones is processed on-board and streamed to the Inspection Management System. On-board Intelligence on the drones (edge computing) is used for adhering to FAA regulations, precise positioning, scanning and deep re-scanning – especially where anomalies are found – in order to arrive at the most suitable images. Exception management and maintenance workflows – human-centric or autonomous – are invoked with minimal human intervention.
