Digitalization of power lines using drones

In June 2021, Hepta digitized medium voltage power lines in Portugal. 1000 kilometers of RGB and IR photo collection, LiDAR mapping, analysis, and presentation of all data in our developed program uBird. The whole work was a scalability test to prove that the drones and their sensors are mature enough to replace manned helicopters. All data collection and analysis were completed in 30 days.
