A joint venture of artificial intelligence at the University of Tokyo, Japan ( AI ) company – “TRUST SMITH Co. , Ltd . ” Announced the development of cracks in solar panels using drones detected. This is said to be the first of its kind in the world.
TRUST SMITH Co., Ltd., founded by a student of the University of Tokyo , has developed the world’s first solar panel flaw detection system through joint development with a large-scale power generation facility developer . With this equipment, it is possible to solve the problem of severe labor shortage and high inspection costs at the site of power generation facilities, promote the worldwide popularity of solar panels, and build bridges for measures to prevent global warming.
Conventional flaw detection method
Find cracks in solar panels manually
The heating point of a traditional solar panel refers to the heat generated when fallen leaves (or other objects) fall on the panel and form a shadow on the panel, which can generally be detected by a traditional infrared camera. The phenomenon. It is possible to prevent it before it happens. However, due to the ” cracks ” caused by the cracking of the solar panel glass , although the cracks caused minor or minor faults, they still produced potential hidden dangers. Therefore, it cannot be detected by conventional methods. As a result, workers must regularly check the panel to find cracks in the panel, which consumes a lot of manpower and material resources.
Uses the latest proprietary technology to address severe labor shortages and significantly reduce costs
The problem with this manual inspection method is that the cost of a single inspection is hundreds of thousands of yen as labor shortages become serious. In order to solve the above problem, TRUST SMITH Co. , Ltd. company and a developer of large-scale cooperation in power generation, in 2 last 9 monthly usage proprietary anomaly detection of the most advanced AI technology developed the first new type of solar panels in the world no crack detection Man-machine.
By introducing this system, it is possible to reduce the labor shortage related to business continuity, reduce the labor cost caused by each inspection, and improve the profitability of solar power generation business. can be realised. In addition, the fact that one inspection is cheap makes it possible to increase the frequency of panel inspections, and by increasing the inspection frequency, it can be expected that the safety of solar panels will be more secure than before.
In addition, with support for this solar panel business, the company claims that it will be able to fill solar panel maintenance deficiencies, make it widely installed worldwide, and make a significant contribution to global
