Twinsity launches TWINSPECT®, the cloud-based platform that makes structural inspections safer, easier and more efficient.

26. April 2022

With TWINSPECT, Twinsity sets a new standard in efficient early detection and documentation:

  • TWINSPECT allows teams to efficiently manage and analyze high-quality drone inspection data directly on a browser, anytime, anywhere.
  • TWINSPECT is an integrated solution that unites all stakeholders on one platform — drone operators share data, engineers perform virtual inspections, and asset owners get the complete picture of their structures.
  • TWINSPECT’s powerful visualization platform uses photogrammetry solutions in ultra- detailed resolution to render photorealistic 3D Digital Twins of the structures.
  • TWINSPECT processes large amounts of data from the high-resolution real-time visualization without the loss of quality.
  • TWINSPECT fundamentally reduces the amount of time spent on an inspection, isolating only those images that matter without losing any detail.
  • TWINSPECT automates damage detection while keeping down the cost of “predictive maintenance”.

KASSEL, Germany, April 26, 2022 — Aging infrastructure, from industrial plants to bridges, are exposed and vulnerable to the elements as well as the wear and tear of everyday use. As a result, minor defects, initially inconspicuous or even invisible to the human eye, can result in sometimes life-threatening consequences over the long term. These issues pose major financial and security challenges for businesses and governments as the detection and prevention of corrosion and damage is time-consuming and prone to error.After more than three years of development, the Kassel-based company Twinsity has launched TWINSPECT, a software solution that fully digitizes the drone inspection process making inspections safer, easier and more cost-effective.

While drones have revolutionized the inspection of infrastructure and buildings, they generate large amounts of unstructured data that for the most part must be manually processed to create usable information.

Twinsity was founded by the father and son team of Uwe and Fabien Chalas, two software architects. By creating a 3D “Digital Twin” of a structure, the inspection process becomes faster and more collaborative. “Our platform is like a professional ́Google Earth for inspections’, says Fabien Chalas. “We saw the opportunity and necessity to create an interactive and collaborative platform for accessing and analyzing drone data for the inspection teams and asset owners.”

The cloud-based software system behind TWINSPECT identifies and analyzes even the smallest defective areas thanks to the powerful real-time visualization of objects. The software platform ensures efficient processing of the inspection data, is an integral part of the inspection process and guarantees access for all those involved.

In addition, the software automates the detection of existing damage and consequently minimizes the risk and burden on people and materials. In the field of “predictive maintenance”, buildings can be checked regularly and quickly in a cost-efficient manner and the structure can be evaluated in real-time to identify any damage and anomalies as early as possible.

“The infrastructure lifecycle management system is available to reliably check and track the development of the corresponding object over a certain period of time,” says Uwe Chalas, Managing Director of Twinsity GmbH.

Machine learning technologies enables the continuous optimization of TWINSPECT’s detection and analysis system in terms of precision and speed. Precision measurements down to the millimeter are taken directly in the 3D model, resulting in an automatically generated inspection report with visual documentation and trend analysis.

The TWINSPECT® cloud simplifies the workflow and enables teams to work together on inspection projects from anywhere, anytime. “With TWINSPECT®, Twinsity offers drone service providers a completely unique way to finally make their inspection data efficiently available to their clients. Engineering firms and asset owners get an intuitive communication and analysis platform for much more cost-efficient, fast, accurate and safe damage documentation and inspection of their infrastructure and assets.”, says Fabien Chalas.


About The Company

Based in Breuna, near Kassel, Germany, Twinsity GmbH was founded in 2019 for the digital inspection of immovable assets such as buildings, industrial plants and bridges and utilize virtual 3D in an added-value-oriented manner. The core product is TWINSPECT® , which enables

the efficient processing and visualization of inspection data. With TWINSPECT® , Twinsity offers a sophisticated software tool for efficiently processing inspection projects.

Two generations, one passion: Twinsity was founded by software architects Uwe and Fabien Chalas, a father and son team, with a legacy of successfully developing drone solutions. In 2010, Uwe Chalas co-founded the drone technology company Aibotix as CTO, which was acquired by the geospatial giant Leica Geosystems/Hexagon in 2014.
