Allows contact with the walls without risk to the machine.
In a confined environment, trying to avoid any contact is unrealistic. It is therefore necessary to be able to bounce on the surfaces and continue the inspection.
A small diameter drone is more nimble to fly and fit in tight environments. Moreover, with a diameter of less than 40cm, the Stereo2 is able to cross most manholes.
Today, optical stabilization is the only way to overcome the lack of GPS signals in confined areas.
The Stereo2 is also able to record its movements in real-time for the pilot and to output them for 3D reconstruction.
Lack of light is a recurring problem in confined environments. Yet, it is essential for the cameras to be able to record the area.
A Wide, uniform, and powerful lighting is mandatory to operate effectively.
Present absolutely everywhere, it clogs up ventilation and causes the equipment to heat up.
The Stereo2 has a passive ventilation system with wide openings that allows quick cleaning only with dry air.
Once airborne, indirect lighting methods such as the Stereo2’s dust mode are essential to ensure good visibility.
The better the definition of the drone’s video feedback, the better the pilot’s ability to understand the hostile environments he is flying in.
