This document describes the simple workflow of capturing accurate cell tower data using the Drone Harmony Tower Scanner.
Tower Scanner is a stand-alone Android mobile application combined with the Drone Harmony Web App. Some steps of the planning workflow can be done in both apps. In such cases, the workflow in both apps is presented below.
The app is designed to allow a good combination of flexibility and simplicity. Drone Harmony supports customers and partners with training. If you are interested, please reach out to email@example.com
Tower Scanner requires a Drone Harmony Enterprise license to use. If you still do not have one, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
To install the app, download the installation file (*.apk) from this link: towerscanner.droneharmony.com and install it on your mobile device (or DJI Controller, e.g., Smart Controller).
The web app is accessible in your browser through the usual link: app.droneharmony.com
Mission planning contains two short steps: Tower Setup and Flight Planning.
Step 1: Tower Setup
The following steps are required to set up a tower model. The 3D view helps you visualize the tower model you are creating.
Important: If you created the tower in the web app, you should save it as a Site before proceeding to flight execution.
Step 2: Flight planning
The following steps will allow you to plan a flight mission.
The flight execution requires the drone to be connected. You will see the drone telemetry and the FPV view appear on the screen.
The calibration is a short special mission that is designed to ensure that the flight execution is accurate and safe.
There are two calibration methods in the app: manual and assisted. Manual calibration is possible with app-supported drones. The assisted calibration works with most supported drones and requires no manual flight.
Option 1: Manual Calibration (requires a short manual flight)
Option 2: Assisted Calibrated (does not require manual flight)
Once the tower center is calibrated, a green circle will appear on the telemetry panel at the top of the screen.
After the tower position has been calibrated, flight missions can be executed.
Parameter choices will be cached for future flight executions.
4. During Automated flight execution, monitor the flight.
