Autonomous solution for cell tower inspection launched

By on 27 November, 2018

vHive, an Israel-based provider of ‘autonomous drone hives’ has launched a solution aimed at conducting autonomous inspections of complex cell tower assets.

vHive provides automated inspection services for rail, bridges, and civil engineering applications and have rolled out this new service to expand their offering in the telco market.

The firm says that its fully-automated workflow can also be used on guy wire towers.

“Millions of cell towers worldwide require ongoing inspection and surveying as part of their ongoing operations,” said vHive CTO Tomer Daniel.

“vHive’s solution has already enabled telecom companies to perform thousands of autonomous tower surveys.  vHive now addresses the complexities of autonomously surveying guy towers. Our ability to intelligently orchestrate one or many drones to acquire data on complex structures such as cell towers, bridges and cranes has enabled us to provide ground breaking solutions to unmet industry needs.”

The firm’s new product will be demonstrated at TowerXchange Asia in Singapore between December 4-5.
