Swissdrones Power Line Inspection Solution Successfully Tested

| |

Swissdrones has successfully completed a challenge set by French power line operator Réseau de Transport d’Électricité (RTE) that required an automated UAV inspection solution.

Several different companies attempted the challenge, and of these only Swissdrones delivered the results required by RTE. The challenge required inspection drones to autonomously fly along a 1 to 2 km stretch of 400 kV power line between Éguzon and Rueyres and gather high-resolution imagery of the line.

To accomplish this objective, Swissdrones used a small helicopter drone capable of carrying multiple payloads, including two 100 MP cameras and one 150 MP camera.
