Officials of Islamic Azad University, Izeh branch, have unveiled an industrial flying robot which can be applied in Shahid Abbaspour Dam and power station in Khuzestan province.

According to an ISCA report, a flying robot named UAV was unveiled and experimented in Izeh Islamic Azad University. The acting head of Izeh IAU, Delavar Esmaeilvandi stated that researches are considered as the basis of a country’s development and universities are playing significant role in growth, development and prosperity of the country.

He also declared that an underwater robot for inspection will be unveiled in this university for the first time in the country, which has been ordered by the industry sector.

The head of Shahid Abbaspour Dam and power station spoke of the university potential and hoped for more cooperation and university‐industry relationships. Drone technology is steadily being incorporated as a sustainable practice for asset managers in various industries.

Nonetheless, current solutions are unable to operate close to structures or in contact with operators, restricting effective inspection in complex environments. While conventional methods are still required for maintenance, preliminary inspection can be performed at lower inspection cost and downtime. Risks are also decreased by avoiding confined space entry and remotely accessing boilers, tanks, pressure vessels, ballast tanks, tunnels and other complex environments inside plants or hazardous work environments.
