The aim of the project is the development of a mobile high voltage warning system. It is based on an innovative measuring principle for the detection of electric fields. The system can contactless determine electrical fields without interfering the field and deduce the location of the source. This principle can be used e.g. to localise high-voltage cables for autonomous drones. On the other hand, the system provides a system with high inherent safety through galvanic isolation for use in work areas of high voltage engineering (line inspection, substations, work safety). The measuring principle is scalable and therefore miniaturizable, which in turn enables its use in the mass market.
