How Expanse® Works

Expanse® uses Artificial Intelligence, Automation and 3D visualisation to automatically analyse inspection images, saving up to 70% of engineering time compared to traditional methods. A powerful AI platform that enables the captured data to be turned into actionable information. This delivers major reductions in OPEX and risk by providing a path to inspection automation and reporting by exception.

Industrial Inspection Data

Expanse® is built for industrial inspection data. Therefore, the range and volume of data that can be imported and exported are significant. Expanse® fully supports the following file types:

Full range static imagery: .TIF, .PNG, .JPEG, etc.

Video Formats including .MTS and .MP4

i

Document file formats including .doc, .pdf, .xls, etc.

Photogrammetry, 3D models including .OBJ and .DAE

Point Cloud data: .PLY, .LAZ

Thermal and Gas Detection including Laser Gas and Sniffer Gas data

360 degree imagery from various camera types etc.

Process & Analysis

Expanse® organises industrial inspection data, enabling all data and results to be associated with specific assets and components. This enables trending and reporting across the whole asset base.

Expanse® helps you to execute your inspection tasks more efficiently. An industrial inspection workflow supported by advanced Artificial Intelligence tools, such as object recognition, change detection and predictive analytics.

AI-powered Defect Detection

Expanse® automates anomaly discovery and quantification across thousands of images in a matter of minutes.

Using Artificial Intelligence, Expanse® finds anomalies (e.g. corrosion) among thousands of images, saving time and delivering more reliable results.

Object Recognition

Expanse® Asset Mechanics breaks down the assets into equipment and components before analysing for anomalies, delivering a significant increase in the accuracy and speed of analysis saving thousands of hours of engineering time.

It is also a critical factor in delivering full automation of inspection analysis and reporting.

Thermal Analysis

With Expanse®, you can find electrical faults, water and gas leak and hot/cold spots through automatic thermal screening.

The tool allows users to set a temperature threshold to sort the dataset.

Forensic Search

Expanse® High Speed Data Search tool offers the possibility to quickly filter large volumes of data to find specific datasets on an asset, allowing inspectors to see the progression of an anomaly over time and predict the future condition of the anomaly.

It rapidly identifies matching object/defects on difficult and repetitive engineering structures e.g. rivets on a tower, flanges on a pipeline etc.

Condition Assessment & Integration

Get access to actionable data through highly visual and intuitive inspection reports from anywhere at anytime.

All annotations, observations and data analysis are presented in various formats: web-based, PDF report, 3D viewer and Asset Mapper.

In some use cases, Expanse® provides automated reporting by exception. Expanse® generates the inspection report alone and only alerts the human when there is an anomaly detected.

3D Asset Scanning & Modelling

Expanse® provides a Digital Twin solution – a virtual presentation of the physical asset, allowing inspectors and engineers to perform predictive maintenance and optimise asset performance.

We can build 3D CAD models using technical drawing and imagery or 3D models using Point Cloud. Expanse® also allows pre-built CAD models, LiDar, Photogrammetry and Point Cloud data to be imported to the platform.

Integration

Expanse® allows easy integration with other Enterprise applications e.g. ERP/EAMS through APIs or compatible file types.

Integration helps reconcile stranded data from separate systems and enables automation beyond the inspection analysis-reporting (e,g, task and materials management), driving operational efficiency.
