Wireless Chargeable Drone Developed for Monitoring Solar Panels

Tabuchi Electric Co Ltd demonstrated a drone that was developed for monitoring solar panels and can be wirelessly charged at Ceatec Japan 2015.

Equipped with an infrared camera, the drone shoots pictures of solar panels at, for example, mega (large-scale) solar power plants to check whether there are abnormalities. It eliminates the need to replace batteries and enables further automation.
