Loughborough researchers to help develop next-generation drone technology for intelligent solar plant inspections
Researchers from the Department of Aeronautical and Automotive Engineering are to help develop cutting edge drone robotics for autonomous, fast, ultra-high-resolution solar plant inspections as part of a new collaborative project funded by Innovate UK.
Dr Matthew Coombes and a team of Loughborough researchers are to help develop next-generation drone technology for intelligent solar plant inspections as part of a new project called 'Follow PV'. The project is being led by Above - leaders in aerial inspection servies and software - and involves experts from the department working in conjunction with the University of Essex.
