Before even getting to the maintenance itself, the diagnostic stage of industrial installations tends to be optimised because it is too time-consuming for field workers, is costly and diverts workers from their maintenance operations. And having people intervene at height or in a dangerous area is a risk that can be avoided. Not to mention cases where it is simply not possible to access the area (e.g. where there is too much vegetation).

This is why many companies have turned to the inspection of installations by agile means, and in particular by drone. A practical and powerful vector that allows - in most cases - to collect the information necessary to establish a need for maintenance without endangering the personnel.  Having access to information that was previously unattainable without a lot of resources is now within the reach of many maintenance workers. This trend is so strong that companies are now deploying the solution on a large scale by training their staff directly in the professional use of drones to be agile and autonomous in their inspections. This is particularly the case at SNCF Réseau, which is gradually training its agents through the Companion Programme of its subsidiary Altametris.
