Raptor Maps is excited to announce we were recently selected as a finalist for the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center’s (MassCEC) latest round of InnovateMass awardees. We will be collaborating with Enel Green Power (EGP) to develop brand new capabilities combining machine learning with state-of-the-art drones and IR cameras for the inspection of PV systems.
EGP’s North American drone team, which specializes in aerial inspections and management of their PV assets, will be working with Raptor Maps to,
“optimize the software for real-time identification and classification of faults onboard the drone, helping make maintenance of solar farms cheaper and more effective.”
The Raptor Maps solar software solution, Raptor Solar™, will be incorporated into field operations to automate their drone data analysis and report generation. The goal is to advance EGP’s drone operations by integrating their hardware with Raptor Maps’ software for real-time identification and classification of solar faults using machine learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Raptor Solar is revolutionizing the solar industry by enabling asset owners/manager (such as Enel Green Power) and O&M teams to have the most advanced system analytics on the DC health of their solar assets.
