AutoModality’s drones can assist in the bridge inspection process by accessing the difficult and dangerous locations on the structure while the inspector remains safely on the ground. In addition, using a drone can be faster than manual inspections and typically avoids lane closures. The drone’s cameras send high definition video in real-time to the inspector during the inspection process and take high resolution photos for later analysis.
AutoModality’s unique Perceptive Navigation technology allows the drones to fly closer to the bridge than is possible using a human pilot, thus providing higher definition imagery.
Perceptive Navigation technology also enables its drones to fly in places where there is no GPS coverage such as under bridge spans and inside tunnels.
