HIGH FREQUENCY TALKS
To What Extent Are Drones A Viable Commercial Solution To Inspect Blades?
The aim of these high frequency talks is to facilitate a discussion on how drones can contribute to blade inspection as well as how the former, when integrated with a data acquisition and categorization software, could truly have an impact on the way damages are being analyzed, monitored and managed today.
Each delegate will be given the chance to express their thoughts, concerns, ideas and solutions anonymously and in written form (5 minutes) through an online platform called Sli.do. The moderator will then read out the audience’s suggestions on how the industry can progress on these issues. The debate will then be opened up to the rest of the room, making this the perfect occasion to take a real step forward and overcome the barriers of using drones.
