How can UAVs provide businesses with safety and convenience?

Innovative technologies are a breeding ground for unique ideas. With new devices such as UAVs, it can take time before the full range of applications is realised and companies really start to see the benefits. 

A recent development has demonstrated the ability for UAVs to save time, money and risk, allowing employees to stay safe and work more effectively. 

UAV use reaches new heights

By supplying our clients with products that allow them to explore innovative solutions, Redstack provides the potential to improve efficiency and productivity. This was demonstrated recently by a company that found a way to replace a dangerous yet essential operating procedure with a simple UAV solution.

One of the main features of UAVs is the ability to attach cameras to them, a feature currently being utilised by everyone from real estate agents to sports broadcasters. Through these measures, anyone can achieve the glorious overhead shots associated with a chopper at a mere fraction of the price. 

There are also practical uses to this feature. A company recently began using them to perform powerline inspections with the assistance of an infrared camera. The benefits to the business from using this technology are numerous. 

Safety is the biggest winner. Previously, workers would have had to scale these structures, creating significant risk for the company to manage. With this new procedure, a Pegasus UAV is equipped with an infrared camera and then sent on an automated flight planned on an iPad, minimising opportunities for human error. 

This brings significant implications for companies tasked with inspecting and maintaining utilities and infrastructure, providing incredible savings with regards to time and cost while maximising safety.

Attaching an infrared or thermal camera provides a unique insight into the components as well, with the technology picking up hotspots that indicate defects in the components and connections that make up the system. This information can then be relayed in real time or recorded for further inspection later, opening up new possibilities for the industry.
