Reliability, safety and cost reduction will be prioritized for utilities in 2019. Experts believe the twin powers of Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) and advanced image analytics can be a transformative solution in their quest for these initiatives. Additionally, this pairing can help power plants operate more efficiently, reducing O&M costs and raise warning alarms when a vital piece of equipment is at risk of failure.
In this playbook, we cover:
- How UAS and T&D analytics are accelerating change in the utility space
- Why UAS and data analytics are poised to revolutionize the inspection of T&D assets
- Several real-world examples of utility companies already seeing the benefits of drone usage and data analytics
- Trends and challenges facing the industry in 2019
