CORRIDOR INSPECTIONS

The EWG-E2V is a lightweight VTOL fixed-wing UAV perfectly suited for corridor inspections and mapping missions. With its considerable range and payload capacity of up to 2kg, the EWG-E2V allows the use of high-grade cameras or multiple sensors simultaneously and thus notably outperforming foam aircraft.

LIDAR

The recent advancements in LiDAR systems have revolutionized industrial inspections by allowing users to create 3D models of infrastructure, such as power lines, with unprecedented accuracy reaching up to 10-20mm.

Ewatt heavy-duty EWZ-D6 multirotor UAV’s equipped with 3D LiDAR offer flight times up to twice that of the most popular aircraft on the market. EWATT UAV LiDAR systems provide a wide range of terrain data products:

  • Point cloud classifications
  • 3D Modeling & visualization
  • Surface extraction (DTM/ DSM)
  • Power line feature extraction
  • Danger point detection & location
  • Power line sag & clearance measurement
