Drones Could Make Aerial Investigations Safer

Pollyanna Sidell - Associated Environmental Systems

Battery advancement with the help from efficient battery testing equipment like Associated Environmental Systems All Test PlatformInspecting the windows of the Empire State Building for leaks, cracks, or other damage using human labor may be a time-consuming–and potentially dangerous–task, especially if you were doing it from the outside. But professor Ronald Besser has a better idea: drones equipped with cameras that can collect photo and video data for live analysis.

The advancement in battery life affects the future of many innovations like these. Once battery life is prolonged, the use of drones and other battery-powered technology will become more widely used. This is why it is crucial to test batteries in a safe, quick and effective manner. Associated Environmental Systems engineers and manufactures environmental test chambers, but more recently has developed a patent-pending All Test Platform. AES' testing platform allows for researches and developers to test batteries inside of an environmental test chamber through wired shelving. Allowing testing to be done seven times faster than a standard tester. The advancement of technology is essential to AES; this is why increasing test efficiency and streamlining data collection is vital. Click here to learn more about AES' battery testing solutions.
