CUP: E42C22000730009 – Start date: 01/05/2023 – End date: 31/10/2024 – Funded by: Regione Lombardia within PR FESR Lombardia 2021-2027, Asse 1, Azione 1.1.1, “Sostegno agli investimenti in ricerca, sviluppo e innovazione”.
Brief description of the project, objectives and results:
The aim of the project is to develop an innovative drone-based solution to enable contactbased inspections on infrastructures (such as high voltage powerlines, civil infrastructures, bridges, viaducts, wind turbines, …). In the framework of the project, a system to carry out contact inspections will be developed; the system will be based on a drone platform which can be configured with the most appropriate payload depending on the asset to be inspected. The technology developed in the framework of the project will support companies in the sector of operations and maintenance of infrastructures in increasing safety of workers, and in reducing inspection time and costs.
