January 27, 2022—Indoor drone maker Flyability has partnered with wastewater inspection software provider WinCan to make sewer inspections safer, faster, and less expensive.
More and more, wastewater inspection professionals are using Flyability’s Elios 2 drone to collect visual data inside sewer pipes. Through this new partnership, inspectors can now import that data directly to WinCan’s sewer inspection software, allowing them to process it, analyze it, and create detailed, standards-compliant reports.
“This partnership with WinCan will bring to wastewater inspection professionals more than a data acquisition tool, but a full solution to inspect, analyze, store, and share their data in a standards-compliant way,” says Flyability co-founder and CEO, Patrick Thévoz. “The added value is huge in terms of cost and time savings, as well as in terms of safety, since inspectors can collect visual data remotely instead of in person.”
WinCan’s software can be used in any scenario that calls for wastewater pipe inspections, including inspections on domestic, commercial, or private properties. WinCan was the first company ever to make software for wastewater pipe inspections, releasing the first version of its software in 1990—today, the software is on version 12.
With WinCan’s software, sewer inspectors using Flyability’s indoor drones to collect visual data can import POI (Points of Interest) photos and their respective stationing, obtain automatic calculations of observation distances and posture length according to the drone’s trajectory, and upload their data to the cloud at the push of a button for collaborating with colleagues and customers.
“Maintaining sewers starts with understanding sewer conditions, and Flyability’s indoor drones are a powerful tool for collecting data inside sewer systems,” says Roger Roesselet, IT Sales Manager at WinCan. “This new integration between Flyability’s drones and our software empowers wastewater inspection professionals to fully harness the power of the data they collect.”
This full, end-to-end solution will make wastewater inspections safer by avoiding the need for inspectors to enter confined spaces; cheaper by collecting visual data twice as fast as manual methods; and smarter by providing sewer inspectors with in-depth analytics, cloud-based collaboration, and standards-compliant reporting.
WinCan’s sewer inspection software is used throughout the world, supporting over 50 observation standards for wastewater inspections in over 50 different languages.
