What is hot spot detection?

When completing inspection work hot spots are always checked for as they are a key sign suggesting something isn't working correctly. Drones and landborne robots are the perfect extension to this by removing humans from potentially dangerous situations while improving the data collected.

How does hot spot detection work?

  1. A drone or landborne robot is activated and sent on an automated inspection path where it collects visual data of specified areas.
  2. During the inspection, any hot spots detected can be sent back to a control room in real-time and stored on the drone or landborne robot for further processing.
  3. Once complete, the drone or landborne robot heads back to its starting point. 

Benefits of using drones and landborne robots

  • Humans are removed from potentially dangerous situations while data collection is improved.
  • Hot spot detections can be completed autonomously and more often leaving humans to deal with the more intricate tasks.
  • Areas that aren't accessible by humans can be inspected, improving safety and the number of data points.
