Drones have already proven themselves in the wind energy industry with many efficiency and safety benefits. Drones capture high-quality data while avoiding hazardous man-hours and minimizing downtime.
The focus is now shifting to advancements in data analysis, primarily in automation and machine learning (ML). Measure’s data collection and analysis processes were developed with machine learning in mind, allowing us to build datasets with consistent labeling in a similar data type. Through our work with partners like AES, a global energy company, we have inspected thousands of wind turbines and collected one of the largest turbine datasets available.
Measure was incredibly excited to work with AES and Google to employ Google's AutoML Vision technology to automatically identify defects and improve the speed of data analysis.
