ScoutDI performed a range of tests onboard the Floating Production Storage and Offloading vessel Varg, demonstrating drone-based asset inspection and various product benefits including non-entry inspection and live remote participation. DNV were also able to demonstrate the use of Machine Learning on live video footage to automatically detect surface cracks in real-time.
