Multispectral imaging camera sensors on agricultural drones allow the farmer manage crops, soil, fertilizing and irrigation more effectively. There are huge benefits both to the farmer and to the wider environment by minimizing the use of sprays, fertilizers, wastage of water and at the same time increasing the yield of crops. Multispectral camera remote sensing…

 

UAV lidar and photogrammetry imaging applications are increasing rapidly. This is not surprising as using GPS enabled UAVs for aerial surveying is very cost effective in comparison to hiring an aircraft with photogrammetry equipment.   Because UAVs are relatively inexpensive, many organisations will have their own fleet, allowing for rapid surveys over large land areas…

 

A drone with GPS and autopilot system including camera gives you plenty of aerial options.  As well as flying a programmed route, a drone on autopilot can take aerial photos and video much better than any pilot can. That is especially true in difficult weather conditions.  A drone flying in autopilot mode is monitoring and…

 

Gyro stabilization, the IMU and flight controller are essential for a drone to fly perfectly. Three and six axis gyro stabilization technology provide navigational information to the flight controller and make drones easier and safer to fly. Gyro stabilization technology is one of the components which gives us the smooth flight capabilities allowing us to…

 

Lidar sensors on UAVs capture imagery which only a few years ago needed an aircraft, large heavy lidar sensors and a crew to accomplish. A lidar sensor mounted on a UAV along with sophisticated software can process the lidar images very quickly in the cloud so effective decisions can be made by stakeholders and relevant…

 

Time-Of-Flight camera sensors on drones or ground based have many powerful uses.   These TOF camera sensors can be used for object scanning, indoor navigation, obstacle avoidance, gesture recognition, tracking objects, measuring volumes, reactive altimeters, 3D photography, augmented reality games and much more. This article explains what Time of Flight 3D depth ranging camera sensor…

 

What are drones used for answered in this  easy to read post along with explanations.  First we look at the broad uses for drones in the various sectors. Then we list how drones are been used in specific sectors.  There is also some excellent videos to show you what drones are being used today. The…

 

Here are 10 drone 3D photogrammetry and photogram tips for the beginner or anyone thinking about using their drone to create 3D models, photogrammetry maps and Digital Elevation Models (DEMS). What is great about creating 3D photogrammetry images is that you don’t need any special sensors on your drone. Just a normal camera. Now, to…

 
 

There are so many benefits of drones across many sectors.  Every week, we read about the many new benefits of using UAVs for inspections. We also see drones being used in many sectors such as science, agriculture, construction, marketing, archaeology, conservation and the environment. They are saving lives, time and money. A couple of years…

 

The number of drones been used on golf courses to create marketing videos and also to maintain the resort is growing.  Creating professional golf course drone videos is an exceptional way to increase memberships and to maintain the golf course to a high standard.  Potential new members get to view a drone golf course flyover…
