Drone applications expanded with the addition of cameras, says report
Most drones are, and will remain, electric, as detailed in the recently released IDTechEx report, “Electric Drones: Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) 2015-2025”. Cameras of an increasing variety of types will be in more and more drones and they will become more versatile, lighter weight, more robust and lower cost as they are used for many purposes beyond navigation and surveillance.
Drone & smartphone photos to help model reality
Bentley Systems has acquired French company Acute3D, provider of Smart3DCapture software for reality modeling. Through reality modeling, observations of existing conditions are processed into representations for contextual alignment within design and construction modeling environments. Advancements in scanning and photography, especially the use of drones for these purposes, are making the capture of such observations broadly and continuousl...
