Drones could provide answer to corrosion in oil pipes

University research has found that drones could be useful for companies looking to avoid corrosion in oil pipes. The work forms part of the H2020 European Research and Innovation project Aeroarms, which is funded by the European Commission. In late May the multi-sensor localization and mapping techniques and new planning methods developed by the University of Seville will be experimented with at a refinery in northern Germany before more experiments are performed next June and July. The work is expected to produce results to generate several industrial products immediately after the project, including aerial manipulators for contact inspection and installation
