At times, conventional field surveys of these unstable slopes are not safe or simply inaccessible due to site conditions. In this case study, we examine how Eye-bot deployed their advanced data acquisition technologies to prepare an existing-condition topographic survey CAD deliverable with survey-grade accuracy of a failed embankment that had these exact characteristics (unsafe, inaccessible).
Drone Data is king. Employing predictive analytics will enable safety and operations personnel to target their efforts as opposed to general inspections. This will not obsolete humans; rather, this will generate both cost savings and efficiency gains by targeting the efforts of these professionals
Commercial UAV News spoke with Jake Lydick to learn more about Eye-bot, his ideas about how 3D models can enhance workflows now and, in the future, and much more.
The advantages of using drones for high-resolution data capture is understood by many to include remote inspections and remote surveys. Drone data capture is far safer than a man armed with a ladder, and oftentimes much more cost-effective.
The Year in Infrastructure Awards is an exciting and well-regarded global competition that recognizes the “going digital” advancements in infrastructure.
