Automated dent mapping –
The IRIS dentCHECK drone
Since 2016, 8tree has been collaborating with industry-leading UAV companies, such as Donecle, to create automated flying versions of 8tree’s popular 3D surface inspection tools. Automated drones and real-time 3D surface inspection with instantly actionable results – sounds like a winning combination!
An automated Donecle drone equipped with 8tree’s dentCHECK has successfully completed a year-long field trial for inspecting French military aircraft. Such a ‘flying dentCHECK’ holds significant promise to expedite commercial aircraft inspection and reporting after extreme hail events.
