Design and development of an intelligent measurement flight mode

Testing industrial facilities including pipelines and tanks are key to optimize operation and maintenance costs in heavy industries such as oil and gas. Hazardous industrial spaces (e.g. confined spaces) are of the most challenging and costly areas to inspect. WorksafeBC has reported about 18 people have been annually killed in confined spaces in BC, in the last decade. Avestec is focused on development and commercialization of a novel flying robot (Robotic UAV) for inspection of hazardous spaces such as interior of tanks for various industries. This task is currently performed manually using scaffolding or rope accessing, solely relying on skills of operators. TO BE CONT’D
