This IAA project will be used to implement cloud-based defect detection software that could be commercialised by the regional SME participating in this project (ADDIT). The autonomous inspection solution that we will develop through this project using artificial intelligence approaches will accurately identify defects and make credible “go / no-go” decisions. We anticipate this could also be applied in different areas such as infrastructure maintenance and marine structures such as an off-shore oil rig. This web-based solution will give the user the ability to access it from any device able to connect to the internet (laptop, tablet, mobile).
