The concept that Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) power transmission line inspection mainly refers to a multi-rotor aircraft or a fixed wing aircraft performs a flight mission and realize real-time image transmission carrying equipment like visible, infrared and ultraviolet gimbal. UAV power transmission line inspection can reduce the working strength and danger level of the workers as well as increase inspection efficiency. On the other hand, UAVs have advantages of low manufacturing and usage costs, easy to use and fully autonomous. Comparing to traditional manual inspection, UAV power transmission line inspection is more efficient especially under the circumstance of extreme weather and bad geographical conditions. The DA electric multi-rotor aerial platform meets the fine inspection demand of power infrastructure, it supports vertical takeoff and landing, hover, track and real-time image transmission between ground monitoring center, it is suitable for infrastructure inspection mission within 10~20 kilometers.
The DA UAV system provides complete automatic recognition and analysis function for images. The background analysis system can directly identify the damage or feature points of the current power infrastructure, it can also save the photos of the suspicious area automatically and can issue an appropriate warning. Consequently, the burden of the ground controllers and the operating cost are reduced.
The DA electric UAV inspection system brings the aerial platform, the visible, infrared and thermometry gimbal, the air traffic control system and image analysis system together, being able to output the thermometry infrared analysis report, the accurate position coordinates of the feature region, the tower foundation number, the flight altitude, the characteristic temperature and so on automatically which greatly increased the productivity.
