3D Robotics have announced the launch of their new 3DR Mapping Platforms, consisting of the 3DR X8-M (multi-copter) and Aero-M (fixed-wing), with highly accurate resolution that allows users to zoom in from the sky “down to the grape.” Each platform is bundled with both hardware and software solutions, including a high-resolution visible-spectrum camera, protective hard-case, auto-pilot controlled image acquisition and professional image processing software powered by Pix4D, 3DR’s newest business partner.
The new 3DR Mapping Platforms have a simple, fully automated three-step workflow: plan, fly, process. The flight planning software computes flight paths over a selected area to survey and calculate exactly which pictures to take and when. While in flight, the drones automatically capture those images and geo-tag each capture to note the exact location. When the drone lands, the user immediately has a series of crisp and accurate images that can then be geo-referenced by the Pix4D software to automatically create a high-resolution, ortho-rectified 2D mosaic map (or 3D model depending on chosen edition) that delivers accurate and immediately actionable data.
From telegrams and televisions to the internet and iPhones: technology has radically changed how we communicate with each other. A new exhibition at London's Science Museum’s looks back at how far we’ve come in just a few generations
O Indiegogo não tem sido o site que mais confiança inspire quanto a alguns dos seus projectos, mas isso não impede que diariamente muitos mais por lá tentem a sua sorte, e hoje deparei-me com este curioso Dragonfly Futurefön.
Será que o sujeito já aprendeu algo com os erros/problemas passados ou ainda está na fase de aprender à custa dos seus potenciais "clientes/financiadores"
It was ballet meets Transformers at a three-day performance put on by the French company La Machine to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between France and China.
DroneDeploy CTO, Nick Pilkington, who has a Ph.D in Machine Learning explains “The drones stream back high definition imagery over LTE during the flight. Our software processes the images rapidly in the cloud and high-resolution orthorectified maps are delivered back to the user in seconds.” The technology is being demonstrated for the first time at ‘ASPRS UAS Technical Demonstration and Symposium’ – a dedicated Drone Mapping conference starting today in Reno, NV.
