The drone patrols preventing natural gas pipeline accidents


New AI-powered vehicles are opening up more advanced and efficient ways to monitor pipelines, ports, power plants and other infrastructure.

The autonomous vehicles can travel by air, on land or underwater and can cover unreachable terrain. They are fitted with sensors that receive, collect and transmit data, allowing them to automatically detect equipment faults and identify security breaches.

Any organization that requires critical infrastructure inspections, building inspections, perimeter security, transport monitoring or event security can now integrate uncrewed vehicles into their first-response teams, providing real-time data to track and monitor multiple situations while keeping people safe.

AI-enabled drones are already up in the air. Here’s how they work.
