A drone fitted with a thermal camera to monitor buildings’ energy efficiency is being developed by students at the University of Strathclyde.

The team of three students, from the University’s Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, aim to commercialise the concept, which is designed to give a comprehensive assessment of energy use.

The partners in the project – Americo Pino, Ken Brooksbank, and Kai Pham – have named their start-up endeavour Drone Wrangler and are currently exploring the diversity and viability of innovative drone technology to create environmental value across industries such as energy, agriculture and construction.

Americo said: “Energy efficiency is important in buildings for environmental and economic reasons but some equipment used to measure it is expensive and doesn’t always give a full reading. Drones can make these types of inspections more comprehensive and thermal imaging technology takes this a step further.

“Our drone lifts off automatically and can link to around 17 satellites at a time, so it’s very precise in the images it takes and very safe to fly.
