In the routine inspection of petrochemical pipeline, power transmission and photovoltaic power generation system, there may be some problems of blind area of vision and low inspection efficiency in manual operation, because the equipment is distributed in a place that is difficult for personnel to reach or open and vast. The UAV equipped with infrared thermal imaging detectors or modules can quickly detect abnormal high or low temperature areas, so as to analyze whether there is oil leakage in petrochemical pipelines, or whether there is overheating risk in power lines and photovoltaic panels, which greatly improves the inspection efficiency and reduces the possible personnel risks.
The UAVs equipped with infrared thermal imaging detectors or modules can work throughout day and night without external light sources. It can penetrate heavy smoke, haze and other adverse conditions, with a visual distance of several hundreds of meters. It can also quickly identify human body in complex environment or in camouflage conditions. This IR UAVs can be used in the complex environment of earthquake, fire, mountain torrent or in other disasters. It can quickly locate the trapped people, identify the potential danger on the damaged road, and greatly improve the rescue efficiency; it can also be used to search for camouflage personnel at night, in forest, fog or other environments with blocked vision, to assist the law enforcement officers in fighting criminals.
The UAVs equipped with infrared thermal imaging modules can overlook the fire through the thick smoke, quickly locate the trapped people, fire points and potential risks. It helps firefighters to formulate accurate fire-fighting plans. It can also patrol forests and grasslands to find high-temperature or flammable points, and prevent the loss of forest resources caused by fire.
The infrared thermal imaging modules enable the UAVs to have the function of non-contact detection of heat. As long as there is a significant temperature difference between the animals and the environment, the animals hidden in the environment can be found. In addition, the UAVs have all the characteristics of large depth, wide field of view and high mobility, which can improve the timeliness and accuracy of population survey, and reduce the danger of personnel and the interference to wild animals.
