    Automated Power Line Inspection

    Together with utility companies in Norway, and with support from Innovation Norway, Sevendof is working to deliver automated power line inspection as a service. Based on a high-level description of assets, Sevendof automatically plans and coordinates a viable inspection mission, which is completed automatically by the drone system with remote oversight. Results from the inspection mission is made available directly to the customer via the cloud.
