GM Uses A Drone To Monitor Warren Tech Center’s Energy Profile3
General Motors is all about the 21st century at its Warren Technical Center in Michigan. Not only does some of the automaker’s engineering happen inside the facility’s 40 buildings, but a drone monitors the property to spot inefficiencies.
In new video from The Detroit Free Press, Steven Tomaszewski, director of sustainable workplaces for GM, explains what exactly the drone does when it’s sent into the air. The drone can carry out pre-planned tasks, or an operator can pilot the contraption manually. When it heads into the sky, the drone will monitor and measure energy performance at the Warren Tech Center.
It’s no small task; the drone monitors 11 million square feet of property. When the drone does find an area of concern, GM can take the data and analyze the energy profile to make changes. Tomaszewski said the team flies the drone daily to collect new data and to see where things can improve.

I work for GM and i can assure you this energy savings plan isnt being preached company wide. We waste more electricity, water, hydraulic fluid, cutting fluids and natural gas than you could even imagine. Equipment maintenance is the last priority. Thats the dirty side people don’t see, but hey go GM! Keep pushing your environmentally friendly look!
Actions speak louder then word mr. 99! If your words are true, there not very loud!
Hey maybe they should do something about the lights that are kept on 24×7 in multiple buildings on the East side of the RR tracks. I work mids so I see it every time I am at work.
