How Indoor Drones are Finding Flaws in Tiny Spaces

March 13, 2019 / KEITH SHAW

Plenty of companies are using outdoor drones to inspect pipelines, power infrastructure, and other hard-to-reach or dangerous locations. But when those locations are indoors or require access to confined spaces, the challenges become different and more difficult.
