The popularity of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) is growing rapidly, and intensifying the availability for multiple applications, civilian and military ones.
The challenge of dependability of UAVs, such as complications of maintenance, have become highly important over the past few years: engines became stronger, enabling a longer flight time, avionics was upgraded, etc. Nevertheless, the tactics used regarding the reliability of UAVs is still too fatalistic.
To decrease costs and increase up-time, ScoutCam’s proprietary technology, Camera as a Sensor™, was developed to allow for the shift from traditional maintenance approach which focuses on the replacement of parts as needed to a predictive maintenance one which highlights the monitoring of the condition of UAV parts at all times.
These UAV Predictive Maintenance articles dive into the future of predictive maintenance analytics, the benefits of using machine learning to predict maintenance, and more.
