Title: Control Center Viewing of UAS-Based Real-Time Sensor and Video Measurements at an Electric Utility Facility

Abstract

Drones equipped with video cameras, LIDAR and thermal imagers have been demonstrated in industrial and utility settings. In such instances, the images are typically locally stored onboard the drone then retrieved from the image storage media and analyzed. We report on a project involving the transport and display of measurements and thermal and visual video streams into a utility control center. Relying on an integrated multimedia communications network, realtime control center viewing of sensor readings and image streams is achieved. Details of this activity are reported.
