Aerial visual inspection requires a tool that allows an inspection expert to easily acquire relevant visual data for inspection planning. The control of the remote sensing platform must be intuitive, safe and flexible and must not require particular piloting skills. Robust and accurate position information is required to achieve this.

While the accuracy of GPS-based navigation is sufficient in outdoor open spaces, it fails indoors and in proximity of structures. Industrial inspection however relies on stable video feeds captured as close to walls, beams, chimneys etc. as possible. Skybotix sensor technology allows UAVs to stabilize and navigate inside and close to structures that need to be inspected.
