Ping Services has launched the second-generation of Ping Monitor and is ready to begin commercial production at a global scale. Ping Services, led by Matthew Stead and fellow acoustician Jon Cooper, has been developing the product for wind farm operators since February 2018.
The IoT-enabled Ping Monitor uses algorithms to monitor the acoustic signature of wind turbine blades to detect damage. The Ping Monitor continuously monitors the acoustic signature produced by wind turbine blades, automatically alerting operators when there is a change that indicates possible damage. The Ping Monitor is currently used on wind farms throughout Australia and in several overseas markets.
