Transmissions lines in remote areas are inspected through field crews and helicopters putting eyes on lines. Because of cost and risk, it can only be done yearly or longer.
Goals and Objectives
Use drones and sensors to monitor performance and physical state of lines. Eventually, line crawlers will be used to continuously monitor lines on all lines. Significantly reduce cost and frequency of manual inspections.
Drones, infrared sensors, analytics, and communications networks
