BrainChild Innovation, LLC Provides Cloud-Powered Artificial Intelligence Software, Autonomous Robotics and IoT Solutions for Clean Energy Infrastructure Inspection and Analytics:
Artificial Intelligence for Wind Turbine Infrastructure Inspections
BrainChild Innovation, LLC is an early stage startup located in the Glenview neighborhood of Oakland, California. We develop enterprise cloud & device powered AI software and hardware solutions for Infrastructure Inspection industry leaders. This includes scalable application-specific machine learning models, Autonomous Unmanned Vehicles, hardware and software support/installation, Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality device interfacing, and routine update/maintenance service agreement options
Society is continually growing and technologically advancing, however some information goes missed due to human error or the costs associated with ensuring constant uptime. Many of these vital technologies, which include utility Gas and Power Grid/Sustainable Energy Technology, Roadways, Structure, Bridges and also Underwater Systems must be inspected regularly in order to ensure they are safe and properly functioning as expected.
The amount of time and costs associated to human inspections are among the highest for many different infrastructure inspection companies. We provide effective solutions, which not only reduce engineering costs but are exponentially more productive than traditional methods.
In Conclusion, we will provide our clients with cloud powered AI and embedded IoT devices, combined with Autonomous Unmanned Aerial Vehicle technology used to classify inspection images on-the-fly, while providing real-time millimetric precision to identify fractures and erosion, transmit files, switch between camera sensors or fine tune settings for capturing the best detail of the turbine blade surface. All information collected would be instantly stored in an easily accessible cloud solution, guaranteed to comply with local GDPR and Privacy Policies. Reviewing real-time wind turbine infrastructure metrics remotely are more accurate and efficient method which saves energy production companies money and infrastructure inspection solution companies time.
Autonomous Ground Vehicle Inspection for Solar Arrays and Battery Storage Facilities
As the demand for clean energy technologies continue to grow, the need for battery storage infrastructure increases as well. Battery storage facilities play a vital role in the advances in Clean Energy, as they help maintain the power consumption demands on the electrical grid system. Ensuring battery storage is working properly and safe has become a major priority for utilities, energy businesses and state/local governments.
Costs associated with manually maintaining and operating battery storage facilities and solar arrays are among the highest for utilities, power producers and ultimately passed along to the consumer in the form of price increases to their bill each year.
Autonomous Unmanned Ground Vehicle Solution solves the issue of having to send engineers out to the field to manually inspecting and maintaining ground level infrastructures. The inspections are completed more often, with more precision which allows engineers to obtain system information faster and more accurately. A-UGVs work seamlessly with IoT and other Autonomous Vehicle systems to provide important data more efficiently.
Aerial Inspection of Utility Power & Gas Grid Systems
Aerial Inspections of public electrical grid infrastructures ensure utility companies can provide the expected utility service one would expect from a electrical or gas provider. However, the cost of Aerial Inspections are in the magnitude of $20-30K per flight. These costs are consistent and required, because the company must confirm their systems are in tact and operational.
