Electrical Transmission Line

A Novel Low-Cost Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Platform for Electrical Transmission Line Inspection

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are now widely used for remote inspection of electrical transmission lines, but capturing detailed information over long distances poses challenges. Additionally, sophisticated equipment is needed due to magnetic field interferences, increasing costs. Now, a team of researchers has introduced an innovative low-cost UAV platform. Using specialized algorithms, it addresses the limitations of affordable equipment, facilitating close-range inspections.
