Drones Empowering Automation + Inspection

Visual Intelligence for vegetation management for utilities | GE Digital

Thursday, June 9 10:30 AM ET


  • Carrie Shuster, Lead Project Manager, Florida Power & Light (FPL)
  • Tim Shea, Senior Analyst, ARC Advisory Group


Advancements in drone autonomy and performance are often outpacing the ability of regulatory agencies such as the FAA to keep pace and thus slows greater adoption, as beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) waivers and Type Certifications are not easily (or quickly) obtained.


In this session we will review some leading drone inspection technologies and look at how applications such as automated inspections, leak detection/methane monitoring, and surveying & mapping, among others are evolving in the US and abroad. Discussion on how drones are really mobile data platforms and how data is collected, analyzed and utilized to empower operational excellence will be had. 

We look forward to welcoming you in Orlando!

If you cannot make the in-person event, there will be an online event March 7-10.  Visit the ARC Forum website to find out more.
