We currently have a particular interest in:
Wind Turbine Blades Damages Detection and Classification
Due to its large and diversified portfolio of wind turbines, Enel needs to speed up and automate the blade failure detection process, leveraging on image recognition algorithms able to identify and classify the different issue that may affect the blades.
The main common failures are the following:
Trailing edge buckling failure
Failure in root region
The system that we are looking for has to support and analyze images coming from different sources and with different quality resolution.
We are not interested in image collection systems (drones, robots,...) but ONLY in image analysis solutions.
