Industrial inspection can be tedious and dangerous, especially when inspectors need to climb or dive to the site. However, drones have made it a bit easier…and fun!

Like playing a video game, inspectors can now use a controller to fly drones form place to place and identify the sports that need maintenance according to GE Reports. The drones are able to get close to high-temperature flare stacks or travel near vapor-filled fuel tanks that are difficult for humans to reach.

The project was put together through a partnership between Avitas Systems, an inspection business and NVIDIA, developers of artificial intelligence.
