FBS-PV: Fly-by-Sensor System for Photovoltaic Energy Plant Monitoring

The FBS-PV concept regards the inclusion of on-board additional sensors to improve the UAVs’ flight accuracy in trajectory during PV O&M procedures without the need of external compensation from human operators. Accuracy is guaranteed by the perfect overflight of the rows of photovoltaic panels thanks to the use of image vision-based controllers.
