New Software Simplifies Oil and Gas Inspections
Industrial Skyworks has announced the official launch of Blue VU advanced software for the accurate and efficient inspection of buildings, and oil and gas infrastructure. Industrial Skyworks’ new Blue VU software will relieve inspectors, engineers and technicians from sifting through thousands of images while providing safe visual access to hard to reach locations, such as the roofs of buildings, flare stacks, and storage tanks.

Drone inspection solutions provided by Industrial Skyworks have enabled numerous businesses to review their drone data and perform inspections from their desktops. These solutions allow users to carry out drone inspections safely and identify problems early, without spending a lot of time or money.

Some of the key capabilities of the new Blue VU software from Industrial Skyworks include:

-Fast and intelligent organizing and sorting of thousands of UAV images
-Intelligent recommendation systems for searching UAV images with the best view to support efficient inspection activities
-Supports synchronized, multimodal exploration of UAV images using 3D point clouds, 3D building models, and 2D maps
-Efficient tracking and controlling of the inspection workflows
-Creates a customized database for structuring, recording, and digitizing anomalies (such as rust, hot spots, cracks, etc.) directly from the UAV images within the software
-Automatic generation of building inspection reports with inspection statistics and visual and vectorised inspection results
-Can export the inspection results into GIS and CAD formats

Highlighting the benefits of the companys just launched inspection software, Industrial Skyworks CEO Michael Cohen explained: “With Blue VU, were able to offer our clients a complete solution, from drone technology to desktop data, that uniquely powers remote inspections, thereby lowering costs while increasing safety outcomes. Finally, remote building, and oil and gas inspections are possible.”
