Global Wind Day

Perceptual Robotics are celebrating #GlobalWindDay in the country with sheep, drones and turbines.

Another completed project

We've just wrapped up a 65 turbine project across the north of the UK. Thanks to the excellent work from the team and support from the client for a smooth implementation. The autonomous drone and AI processing made the process a breeze despite wind, snow and a global pandemic. With many more projects scheduled for 2021, fingers crossed for sunshine!

Collaboration with DNV and University of Bristol

Perceptual Robotics are looking forward to collaborate with DNV and the Visual Information Lab of the University of Bristol on this exciting project which will investigate the automated verification, validation and processing of inspection data, collected by autonomous drones, to improve inspection quality and performance.

Renewable industry requires technology solutions to deliver sustainable projects. DNV, Perceptual Robotics and Visual Information Lab have taken up the challenge to deliver leading solutions to Clients.

This project will involve developing new methods and guidelines for AI data processing to provide Clients with accurate information of their Asset's condition within hours after the inspections have been performed.

Incredible women

These incredible women have inspired our work with their innovations and contributions to science, technology and engineering.

Join our team, and let's inspire the next generation with our innovations!

Storm Darcy

Some gorgeous views from Scotland last week, and great weather for blade inspections. Storm Darcy was bringing cold winds, but the clouds were nowhere to be seen!

Offshore trials with L3 Harris

The team has been working hard on the offshore version of our autonomous blade inspection solution.

In collaboration with L3Harris Technologies, VulcanUAV (Alex Hardy), the University of Bristol, and Spectrum Offshore Limited we have completed an Innovate UK project to develop and demonstrate autonomous take off and landing from moving vessels.

The solution allows reliable operation from manned, and unmanned vessels in the offshore environment and is a key component to industrial drone operations offshore.

We’re looking forward to commercial trials of the systems in 2021.
