CableWalker.exe - intended
for storing passport parameters of the surveyed power line, design parameters of power lines processed
the results of field examinations and the formation of reports on the condition of the power line based on the
Cable.Sim - ubsystem for computer modeling of power lines intended for automated programming full-scale inspection of power lines. Based on the digital model of the power line and the list of tasks for the survey a mission is being formed survey of the power line, which is used by the CableWalker platform in the automated and (or) automatic mode.
Cable.Mag – magnetic scanning data analysis subsystem and detection of defects: loss of section and local breaks wire.
Cable.Laser - laser data analysis subsystem scanning and detection of defects: violation of dimensions and arrows sag, support slopes along and across the power line route.
Cable.VideoExpert - The expert subsystem is designed for processing of photo and video images in order to identify defects of various types.
