Bridge Inspection And 3D Defects Analysis by Manam Applications Ltd.
February 3, 2021
Manam Applications Ltd. and AviSight were awarded a grant from the prestige BIRD Foundation to develop a drone bridge inspection technology, 3D analysis and deliver a full integration and Bridge Management System.
Thus enabling efficient, intelligent, fast, and straightforward processes to inspect and easily maintain bridge structures throughout the US & North America and worldwide. A significant challenge was to create a 3D reality model of the bridge/structure (such digital twins are commonly used by bridge engineers), using state of the art hardware and software.
Manam Applications examined and tested several flight-planners and found out that the Drone Harmony flight planner is the most simple, efficient, precise, and suitable for their needs. They used a combination of Drone Harmony flight plan patterns. The applied data capturing technique included “Mapping Orbits” combined with the “Facade Inspection” flight patterns ultimately resulting in the highest quality 3D Reality Model.
Drone Harmony has released a new update for its professional drone mission planning software for commercial use. The software now supports all new DJI Enterprise drones, including Mavic 3 Enterprise Thermal, Matrice 30 Thermal, and Matrice 300 RTK. The highlight of the recent release is the new support of the DJI’s Matrice 30, and Mavic...
Drone technology is transforming the power utilities industry, enabling more efficient and cost-effective operations for inspecting and maintaining critical infrastructure. One platform that is leading the charge in this space is Drone Harmony Power Scanner, which offers a suite of advanced features designed specifically for line inspection. At the heart of the platform is a...
Stephan Nebiker, Professor of photogrammetry, remote sensing, and geoinformatics at the Institute of Geomatics Engineering of FHNW, uses Drone Harmony in bachelor and master photogrammetry classes. He teaches students the processes of digital aerial photogrammetry. We were invited to talk with him. Stephan, please introduce yourself. I am a photogrammetry, remote sensing, and geoinformatics professor...
