All-in-one solar farm drone inspections

Ground robotics serves as a powerful new tool for inspecting solar farms. Robots can withstand hot, harsh and wet conditions to efficiently inspect sites. Equipped with 360 cameras, PTZ cameras and thermal imaging sensors, these unmanned ground vehicles can inspect a variety of aspects of your solar energy farm autonomously.

With DroneDeploy, you can send rovers on autonomous solar inspection missions to capture 360 walkthroughs, detect maintenance issues or malfunctioning panels, and upload data to the cloud automatically. You can also utilize drones to perform aerial inspections of your site. As a result, you'll be able to get a full visual of your solar farm without ever having to perform manual inspections.
