Investigation of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Routes to Fulfill Power Line Management Tasks

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 784)


Paper presents unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) usage options and importance to fulfil power engineering tasks, improvements and their explanation. This paper also is part from research in this field restarted this year based also on previous research connected with power consumption problems [1] and propose initially data according topology without full coverage of data necessary to present final data.
