Risk-aware Automated Port Inspection Drone(s)

Project description

Sailing towards unmanned inspection services

Early warning systems are essential for disaster prevention. To minimise disruption and delays to critical supply chains, it is important to detect any deterioration in transport system infrastructure. The EU-funded RAPID project will combine and extend drone technology to deliver a fully automated and safety-assured maintenance inspection service for bridges, ship hull surveys and more. Specifically, the service will combine self-sailing unmanned surface vehicles with autonomous unmanned aerial systems. The aim is to reduce the time and cost of structural condition monitoring of maritime transport infrastructure such as material-handling equipment, cargo and passenger ships, and bridges. RAPID's new system will also facilitate the prioritisation of safer transport infrastructure.
