solution

Inspect and inventory faster while reducing O&M costs

Threats from extreme weather and the increased adoption of distributed energy resources (DERs) require that electric utilities get smart about proactively mitigating risk on the distribution grid. These mitigations generally entail inspection and inventory of grid assets, but current methods are ill-suited for the task, requiring dedicated vehicles and crews - a process that is entirely manual, extremely costly and too slow.

Our solution, Inspector, reduces the need for dedicated distribution asset inspections and helps to mitigate risk at-scale while reducing cost. Inspector is a fully integrated hardware and software solution that mounts on existing fleet vehicles and uses computer vision to automatically identify pole-top components and defects whenever those vehicles are in motion, for any reason, without the need to mobilize dedicated inspection teams. Results are sent to the cloud for real-time alerting and review.

benefits

Increase distribution asset reliability, resiliency & safety

Simply put, Inspector enables electric utilities to reap the reliability, resiliency and safety benefits of at-scale inspection and inventory - on the distribution grid.
Inspector's benefits include:
  • Identify issues faster & mitigate risk
  • Enrich and update asset inventories
  • Reduce O&M costs
  • Leverage existing fleet vehicles
  • Convert travel time in active inspection
  • No impact on crew duties

use cases

Enable Infrastructure Intelligence across a variety of use cases

Inspector can significantly accelerate asset defect detection and inventory while reducing O&M costs across multiple use cases.

Distribution Pole Inspection

Automatically identify defects in pole equipment such as leaking and corroded transformers, broken lightning arresters, pole damage and more.

Distribution Pole Inventory

Automatically inventory pole components such as insulators, cutouts, transformers, lightning arresters, and pole composition, while capturing the geographic coordinates of each pole.

3rd Party Attachments

Assess 3rd party pole attachments to better understand existing equipment configurations, and to speed the process of permit application review.
