The self-developed high-tech flying robot SensorCopter facilitates airborne inspection of vertical objects. The mini-helicopter is equipped with sensors and cameras. The captured images are evaluated. A fully IT-based report of possible damage is automatically generated.
The SensorCopter is an unmanned, semi-automatic helicopter with a rotor diameter of 2.3 meters / 6.7 inches. Precision flying is carried-out via autopilot. Several high-resolution cameras and sensors are attached to a gimbal, making a continuous and competed data collection possible. The gathered data is sent to a mobile ground station, undergoing a post-processing step and can be viewed by ‘Aero-View’, the company’s proprietary software. In addition, with the more sophisticated ‘Aero-Lyse’ software data can be analyzed and marked. Finally, an automatically report on the actual state of the examined plant can be generated and printed.
