Along the way, the video inspection is RECORDED producing a FILM that is delivered to the client. In addition, PHOTOGRAPHS of the most interesting spots can be taken. Thanks to the power of computer vision and LiDAR (light Detection and Ranging) mapping, the drone is able to provide, in real time, the 3D digital map of the route taken.

Areas of application in industry
Power plants
Production plants in general.
Heat exchangers
Tube bundles
Electrical substations
Industrial air conditioning systems

Possible problems that can be highlighted by visual inspection (camera in the visible and/or infrared):
Damaged welds
Accumulation of material
Mold and corrosion
Gas or liquid leaks: infrared sees temperature change
Overloads and overheating as it detects hot spots within electrical systems or equipment
Thermal insulation problems in walls and piping
Moisture or water infiltration.

Application areas in the civil sector
Water plants / Purifiers
Subway stations
Non-serviceable buildings

Possible issues that can be highlighted by inspection
Wastewater flow obstructions from accumulations of solid waste, debris, plant roots within sewers.
Structural injuries caused by wear and tear over time, soil movement, heavy loads, or roots penetrating the pipes;
Leaks due to defective joints or broken or damaged pipes:
Structural damage, leaks, insulation problems, system malfunctions also due to natural disasters e.g. earthquakes, landslides.

Benefits of using a drone for confined space inspections
Operator safety: the use of the drone minimizes the risk to humans by avoiding physically entering hazardous confined spaces.
This significantly reduces the possibility of accidents, injuries or exposure to harmful substances.
Reduced time in conducting an inspection and reduced costs as much bureaucracy and time in preparing permits is eliminated and by going to limit the use of humans in preparing for the inspection. In addition, business downtime can be minimized bringing less overall impact as drones can quickly and efficiently cover large areas. Detailed data collection as drones being equipped with multiple high-resolution cameras, thermal sensors and Lidar sensor to be able to have a real-time reconstruction of the inspected environment in 3D models, one will have accurate reports that can be used for in-depth analysis on any future work or maintenance.
The drones are able to reach and explore areas that are difficult for humans to reach such as narrow ducts, inspection shafts, tube bundles, boilers, penstocks, etc.
