Abstract

Mentenanta realizata cu ajutorul dronelor multirotor folosind camere termosensibile nu mai este o noutate de mult timp si are avantaje multiple: costuri reduse, minimizarea accidentelor de munca, iar datele achizitionate pot fi analizate in timp real sau pot fi stocate pentru a fi analizate ulterior de catre un specialist. Dar acest proces are si dezavantaje: autonomie de zbor limitata a dronelor, generata de dezvoltarea greoaie a tehnologiei acumulatoarelor si numar mic de personal specializat in acest domeniu. Pentru minimizarea acestor dezavantaje, am dezvoltat un sistem automat de reincarcare al acumulatoarelor, fara deconectarea acestora, care permite automatizarea procesului de scanare si ofera posibilitatea preluarii controlului dronelor si de la distanta.

Maintenance using multi-rotor drones and heat sensitive cameras is no longer a novelty and has multiple advantages: low costs, minimization of work accidents, and the data acquired can be analyzed in real time or can be stored for later analysis. But this process also has disadvantages: limited flight autonomy of drones, generated by the hard development of battery technology and a small number of specialized personnel in this field. To minimize these disadvantages, we have developed an automatic recharging system of batteries, without disconnecting them, which allows the automation of the scanning process and offers the possibility of taking control of the drones and from a distance.
