The multiple applications of this technology are evident, as they offer an autonomous device that in just some minutes can scan a façade with as much or a higher precision than 3D scanners. It is noteworthy that this device can get close to the object up to a few inches to obtain the smallest and unreachable details.

Researchers at the University of Grenada are working hard to create a 3D photography system that takes advantage of the use of unmanned aerial vehicles to render lifelike representations of famous monuments and landmarks.


The researcher’s goal in this project is to be able to automate the process of capturing and cataloging 3D models of famous monuments without any human intervention. Considering the rapid advances in both UAV and 3D technology, the chances are good that they will succeed!
