Drones

IDEA Ingeniería offers its customers the application of technological progress with the use of drones, using them for the inspection and control of industrial installations and infrastructures at a height where access for their maintenance and inspection by traditional methods are complex and involve safety dangers.

Drones, inspection and control.

The purpose of this innovative technology is to make work easier for companies in the Industrial sector as well as to keep expenses and risks to a minimum, reducing the use of staff, the works’ implementation time and, accordingly, the cost.

What is a drone? - Idea ingeniería

What is a drone?

A drone is an UNMANNED aerial vehicle, its real name is RPAS (Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems). The word drone is English. It is called a drone. They are also known as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV).

Termografía Dron - Idea ingeniería

Photogrammetry

Photogrammetry is a technique for determining the geometric properties of objects and the spacial situations based on photographic images, obtaining 3D models and/or from the cloud points generated. In this way, and using our drones fitted with GPS, the georeferencing is obtained of the objects and points scanned. In the same way, by swapping different cameras we can generate thermal or visible spectrum maps.

Nube de puntos - Idea ingeniería

Scanning (point cloud)

By combining traditional scanning techniques, such as the 3D laser scanner, and the point clouds generated by our drones, we obtain a data file with a totally complete point cloud, avoiding blind spots at the installations.

Applications to the sector - Idea ingeniería

Applications to the sector

  • High-resolution camera

    The drone has cameras which provide very clear images and areas can be verified which are hard to access and very risky as said cameras are endowed with stabilised optical zoom.

  • Thermographic camera

    We have a thermographic camera for the detection of hotspots and the generation of thermal maps, thereby carrying out preventive maintenance of the industrial installations.

  • Point cloud

    Point cloud processing for subsequent work at the office.

  • Status reports and analysis

    The data obtained are subjected to analysis and reports are generated of the lines.

  • Control techniques

    Using a drone, the control techniques are improved drastically, detecting any irregularities early with maximum precision and reliability, obtaining data which are comparable with other subsequent inspections which allows a more precise evaluation.

  • OnShore and OffShore Inspections

    OnShore and OffShore Inspections

Inspección de líneas eléctricas

Inspection of electrical lines

  • Exhaustive visual inspection and thermograph of the low and high voltage electrical lines.

  • The drones prevent workers from having to go up the tower and travelling long distances to carry out our projects, submitting high quality data as no risk is taken when acquiring information.

  • The inspections are speeded up and power cuts are avoided, solely supplying electricity at the time of works’ implementation.

Inspección de infraestruturas

Infrastructure inspection

  • Safety inspection of buildings, structures and cranes, through a periodic review.

  • It allows us to detect and measure corrosions, deformations and cracks.

  • Traditional methods are often risky, slow, expensive and involve the closing of lanes, the use of crane trucks, walkways, etc.
