Library of Challenges

Short description: Carrying PV panels up on building roofs is physically demanding and time-consuming work. The challenge owner is looking for a reliable and cost-efficient solution in which load drones lift the panels up to the exact spot on the roof where they will screwed on and wired directly by the electrician.

Market potential: PV is a fast growing market worldwide. Time efficiency becomes increasingly important, so the market potential for efficient solutions is estimated very high.

Timing: Solutions are welcome as soon as possible.

Desired result: The work time for the installation of PV plants is significantly decreased by drones which lift one or more PV panels at the same time up on roofs (average height 15 m). The drones are precisely directed based on the floor plan of the building. An interface to the PV planning software is needed.

Information on challenge owner: Micro SME (< 10 staff). Market presence of challenge owner: Active in several countries. Keywords: Installation of PV systems; Load drones; Large photovoltaic systems; Work safety; dxf interface
