    Project Details

    Description

    The project will develop a cost-effective robotic inspection system for automated monitoring of solar power plants using cameras mounted on ground and aerial drones. This system will measure the accumulated dust on the panels and diagnose possible defects to determine efficient maintenance and cleaning procedures.
