Alerion’s WEGOOI is a fully autonomous drone, performing inspections of wind turbines. Real-time damage identification drastically reduces the time and cost involved in a single wind turbine inspection. Microns of damage are detected through a 3D image generated by the drone’s advanced AI system.

Connect Tech partnered with Alerion to provide a carrier board that would house the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier module required for this edge device and would bring out connectors for XIMEA cameras. This case study details the limitation of early field UAV options, and the steps Alerion took in designing and deploying this AI driven drone.
