Ultra-portable drone solution for flexible wind turbine blade inspections

02 Jun 2022

Sulzer & Schmid Laboratories AG has launched its new 3DX SmartPilot drone solution, specifically developed to enable inspection campaigns in geographies where site access or complex logistical barriers require a quick, highly portable blade inspection solution. Operators can now rely on the 3DX SmartPilot to deliver semi-autonomous drone inspections using portable equipment that can be brought onsite easily and deployed immediately. The 3DX SmartPilot Solution is powered by Sulzer Schmid’s proprietary software and compatible with most small off-the-shelf DJI drones. It is designed to deliver semi-autonomous inspections carried out by a drone pilot with the assistance of the 3DX software to ensure optimal flight paths. The inspection data is uploaded, processed, and analyzed in the 3DX Blade Platform, an advanced data management system for blade inspections.
