Drones, or uncrewed aerial systems (UASs), can safely detect failing structures and equipment in less time and for less cost than traditional methods.
Jennifer Bays’s insight:
"UAV remote-sensing and inspection technologies are rapidly evolving. As artificial intelligence goes mainstream, predictive maintenance will become standard operating procedure, making it possible to head off equipment failures. Connected drones will soon make their debut in a 5G world, bringing more capabilities and data within reach."
