A severe storm caused power outages. A group of drones flies out of charging stations located on high-voltage poles. They fly a designated route, their cameras scanning selected elements of the power lines. The footage obtained during the flight is analysed using machine learning and sent to inspection staff for final evaluation. They can thus immediately identify the point of failure and initiate repairs in a much shorter time than today's common practice.

The new university building passport methodology will not only help public universities in their dealings with the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports but will also serve to give them a better overview of the buildings that the university owns and manages. The ministry can thus prepare subsidy programmes based on comparable information on university properties. The methodology was developed by an expert group composed of experts from the BUT, CTU, MU and UPCE, based on the decision of the MoEYS. The methodology was commented by a wide community of engineers from all universities.
