While drones have revolutionized the inspection of infrastructure and buildings, they generate large amounts of unstructured data that for the most part must be manually processed to create usable information.

Twinsity was founded by father and son Uwe and Fabien Chalas, two software architects. By creating a 3D “Digital Twin” of a structure, the inspection process becomes faster and more collaborative. “Our platform is like a professional ´Google Earth for inspections', says Fabien Chalas. "We saw the opportunity and necessity to create an interactive and collaborative platform for accessing and analyzing drone data for the inspection teams and asset owners.”

The cloud-based software system behind Twinspect identifies and analyzes even the smallest defective areas thanks to the powerful real-time visualization of objects. The software platform ensures efficient processing of the inspection data, is an integral part of the inspection process, and guarantees access for all those involved.

In addition, the software automates the detection of existing damage and consequently minimizes the risk and burden on people and materials. In the field of "predictive maintenance", buildings can be checked regularly and quickly in a cost-efficient manner and the structure can be evaluated in real-time to identify any damage and anomalies as early as possible.

“The infrastructure lifecycle management system is available to reliably check and track the development of the corresponding object over a certain period of time," says Uwe Chalas, MD, Twinsity.

Machine learning technologies enable the continuous optimization of Twinspect's detection and analysis system in terms of precision and speed. Precision measurements down to the millimetre are taken directly in the 3D model, resulting in an automatically generated inspection report with visual documentation and trend analysis.

The Twinspect cloud simplifies the workflow and enables teams to work together on inspection projects from anywhere, anytime. “With Twinspect, Twinsity offers drone service providers a completely unique way to finally make their inspection data efficiently available to their clients.

Engineering firms and asset owners get an intuitive communication and analysis platform for much more cost-efficient, fast, accurate, and safe damage documentation and inspection of their infrastructure and assets.”, says Fabien Chalas.
