2015-07-20 Polland:Inspection of Bridges and Power Grid Infrastructure Using Remote Sensing Methods

Inspection of Bridges and Power Grid Infrastructure Using Remote Sensing Methods

Description of the project offered: 
The aim of the project is to develop methods and/or technology which will allow the construction of an innovative product, and that will be introduced on the market. This product will allow for non-invasive, remote inspection of bridges and power grid infrastructure using UAVs equipped with remote sensing devices, data processing software, and modern user interface realized by virtual reality techniques.
The most innovative and compelling features of this solution will be real-time visualization of inspected object, achieved through fusion of data coming from many sensors such as: cameras of visible light, infrared, thermal, multispectral, and LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) using virtual reality techniques. 
We assume the following work packages within the project:
WB1. Design, purchase, construction, testing and validation of suitable UAVs for the inspection methods under operational conditions. Working package includes a comparative analysis of different UAVs platforms and the selection of the most advantageous hardware platform. The accuracy of the location will be the important issue as well as flight stabilization crucial for the good quality of the inspections.
WB2. The selection, integration, testing and validation under operational conditions of the suitable remote sensing equipment: visible light cameras, infrared, thermal and multispectral. The package will cover the analysis of the various sensors, cameras, as well as LIDAR technology, the possibility of a data fusion from these sensors and integration with the software.
WB3. The construction of the appropriate software for storing, processing data from remote sensors, testing and validation under operational conditions. The important issue will be the aggregation and fusion of the data from different sensors in order to achieve optimal input material for inspection.
WB4. The construction of the appropriate software for supporting UAVs mission during inspections; testing and validation under operational conditions. An important issue will be the planning and carrying out missions to ensure coverage of the entire inspected area.
WB5. The construction of the applicable software for modern user interface using virtual reality techniques; testing and validation under operational conditions. Another important issue will be the creation of the solution of a 3D sphere based on data from remote sensing; rendering the data and interaction with the HMD (head-mounted display) user interface in virtual reality.
