UAV REVOLUTIONIZING IN FIELD REPORTING
Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) or more commonly known as a Drone, has an established successful record with numerous Multi-Million- and Billion-dollar construction companies. These companies understand and have enjoyed the results of Drone Mapping. How speeds construction and safety and make your project safer and more profitable. Drone imaging and mapping provide a highly detailed photographic record that can be used by the Superintendent to discuss with Project Management and Sub Contractors to actually see the project “at a glance”, the available assets of drone Inspection AZ, will allow the client to compare weekly maps and see the changes, enabling them to
evaluate progress, on site flow in regards to materials and equipment, can improve the job site conditions where safety hazards are found before they become profit eating monsters. Also, adherence to survey and design drawings, save large sums of money by noticing field errors in layout and utility installation. Drones are also able to identify within a cm. the location and elevation of monuments, utility stub ups, hydrants, manholes and many other onsite issues. Read more about the mapping, volumetric and equipment logging. A new feature just implementing using AI can count single objects such as plants trees bundles of pipe, wood and other materials installed and on site.
RTK and PPK</b> have revolutionized the abilities and accuracy of the UAV to an accuracy of 1 cm horizontally and 2 cm vertically. When integrated with Ground Control Points (GCP’s) most of the field and measurement capabilities can be completed quickly by Drone Mapping <ul><li>Real Time Kinematic (RTK) is a GPS correction technology technique that provides real-time corrections to location data when the survey drone is capturing photos of a site.</li> <li>Post Processed Kinematic (PPK), another GPS correction technology technique that works to correct location data, except in the cloud after the drone data has been captured and uploaded.
With a data-link connection, such as GSM or Wi-Fi, a drone will connect to a base station or a virtual reference station (VRS) via the laptop which controls the flight. The camera positions are calculated in real-time, referring to these ground references whose location is accurately measured for a long period of time. The calculation helps correct the camera positions to optimize accuracy, both horizontal and vertical. Survey teams will be able to accomplish the more critical tasks they are burdened with staying ahead of the engineering demands The need for surveyed as-built and orientation can be optimized by using the survey GCP’s as landmarks which will be used over and over and will be programed into the flight logs of the Drone.
