UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) is an unmanned drone, which can be deployed into the air effortlessly with ease. With an electric motor, the automatic UAV is almost silent and the safest way to obtain aerial photography. Typically flying at an altitude of 100-150m, the UAV can obtain data from the most restricting of environments and weather conditions, turning lengthy complex projects into cost saving and time efficient results.
The UAV can produce an exact scale of Orthophotos, a DSM point cloud or thermal imagery. The point cloud can be formed to create a surface model, or as a basis for the design of volumes calculation.
Large areas can be surveyed with significant reductions in time. The UAV can be deployed practically anywhere whilst withstanding most weather conditions, making it perfect for surveying areas such as hot deserts, forestry, seashores, harsh mountain terrain, refineries and any other building. 3D surface models and aerial photographs can be produced by a model that conforms to the ground, buildings and vegetation. The surface model can be delivered from point cloud data (e.g., 4 points / m²) or a grid.as a regular (e.g., 0.5 m square). Notification feature points can be determined by the orthophotos of the RGB colour code, which is a more illustrative point cloud.
An enhanced 3D model can allow the area to be examined further, where an exact digital representation of the environment can be documented and measured with ease. Any proposed new changes can be simulated prior to construction which allows teams to operate efficiently, with a significant reduction in cost and reduced safety risks.
Using ROAVs (Remotely operated Aerial Vehicles) assets can be inspected in real time obtaining HD Images, videos and infrared images. This UAV survey can significantly reduce the cost, time and safety risk imposed whilst removing the need for shutdowns.
