How do drones help us test? Some objects that we test are in hard to reach areas. Technicians have has to crawl in pipes or up tall ladders, which is a safety hazard to our workers. With the use of drones technicians can fly it into a pipe or up a tall building in construction to test and to identify areas that need further examination. Drones minimize the amount of time that technicians are in hazardous situations.
When we need to test in hard to reach areas, we sometimes need to set up tall ladders and scaffolding. The client whom we are testing for would need to stop the work going on in that area in order for us to set everything up and test. The client would be losing revenues by stopping production. AER is able to avoid the costs of lost production by utilizing drones to test the hard to reach areas.
Technology allows AER to increase our worker's safety and decrease our client's work stoppages. How do you use new technology to your benefit?
