Drones Help Restore Power To Puerto Rico

According to the tech website Wired, Duke Energy is making use of five drones to handle dangerous tasks that are normally handled by humans in Puerto Rico. Those tasks include finding downed or submerged power lines, or stringing new lines over difficult terrain. Prior to the introduction of these unmanned drones, Duke’s workers would normally need to search for downed or submerged power lines in person. This could mean traversing through the island’s tropical forests and across ravines and gorges.
