Programmable Drone based Patrolling of Transmission Lines

JBS is continuously exploring and investing in upcoming technologies to improve the services and the value it provides to the clients. The success of the smartphone based application has opened up other avenues and now programmable drones are being tested to enhance quality, speed and efficiency of monitoring. Drones provide the technology, open up options for innovative solutions to many current challenges in O&M, and thus warrant further exploration to quantify technical and commercial advantages.


The drone based patrolling offers many benefits including:

  • Satisfactory inspection of towers at inaccessible locations
  • Elimination of the need to shutdown or use of special safety gear for manual tower top inspection which is a potential hazard
  • The close-up photography which can subsequently be used for analysis
