Project Description: Inspection of solar panels to find defect modules is a time-consuming task as they are either installed on rooftops where they are difficult to reach or are located on very large solar farms.
Our project aims to develop a tool for inspection of solar panels using a drone. During an autonomous flight visual and thermal images are taken which are later automatically analysed to locate irregularities including defects. The images are then visualised on a graphical interface showing the location of panels requiring maintenance.
