MULTIROTOR G4 SURVEYING-ROBOT

Find out in the new brochure how the Surveying Robot facilitates your daily surveying work. The precise acquisition of complex projects with classical surveying sensors (Tachymeter and GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems) requires a great amount of points. Besides the enormous amount of time for the recording of the points, the employees are often exposed to great risks which can only be minimized to a calculable degree by expensive safeguarding. With the use of the Surveying Robot the time and costs requirements for the measurement of many projects can be reduced considerably.

Tachymeter vs. MULTIROTOR Drohne

Traditional Surveys with the tachymeter

In the community of Brieselang, just west of Berlin, we measured a traffic circle (here) in the conventional way. During 30 min. we obtained 180 data points with the tachymeter (10 seconds to measure each point). The result delivered the Digital Terrain Model (DTM) to the left.

Surveys with MULTIROTOR are verified as accurate

To prove the accuracy of our UAV-based survey technology we placed 147 measuring plates throughout the 2,000 m2 - area of the traffic circle. With the help of the plates position and elevation of the area have been precisely measured with the tachymeter. It took two minutes to measure each point.

Autonomous Measurement with MULTIROTOR UAVs

This was followed by a survey flight with one of our MULTIROTOR G4 octocopters and a special high-resolution camera. The flight plan with its relevant project requirements was generated by our software package "MULTIROTOR Ground Station and GeoMap Win 3.4".

All that is needed is to import a satellite map of your choice (e.g. at no cost with Google Earth). Then, you place the desired waypoints, choose the camera which will be used from a drop-down list, and the desired ground resolution. The MatrixWizard of the software automatically calculates the optimum flight path and altitude, the distance between the trigger points as well as the distance between the legs of the flight path from one another.

Geo images with ground resolution of 1 mm and measurement accuracy of 6 mm

The surveying flight took 24 min. During this time the copter documented an area of 2,000 m2 in 751 individual photographs. In the „On The Way-Mode“ the camera beneath the octocopter takes all pictures during the flight without stopping.

The exact geotagging is delivered through the MULTIROTOR GeoPlug and the MULTIROTOR GeoMap Win 3.4 Software within seconds after the survey flight on site by a laptop.

Filetypes

Agisoft PhotoScan can export the following filetypes: GeoTIFF, KML/KMZ, Collada, VRML, 3DS, FBX, PDF, DXF, U3D, OBJ, PLY, XYZ Point Cloud, LAS.

Unique and detailed UAV surveying

With the 147 measuring points we determined the accuracy of the survey flight. Each measuring point was compared to the results of the tachymeter measurement.

The difference in (X, Y) position was a maximum of 6 mm and 10 mm in elevation (Z axis). In summary, the MULTIROTOR offers unique and detailed UAV surveying. The additional measurement methods of our UAVs ensure a very high accuracy of position and elevation for the entire area.

High-resolution ortho photo (UAV)

Because of the special high-resolution camera of the MULTIROTOR G4 copter the ortho photo has 985 megapixels with a ground resolution of 1 mm per pixel. This enables you to survey the covered area pixel by pixel at any time comfortably from your desk.

 

To display the ortho photo we decided to make use of the Google Maps API due to its remarkably vast data size. The API allows the display of relatively large photos with an edge distance of around 44 metres in a user-friendly manner and with zoom functionality. The traffic circle is located here.
