In recent years, drones have gone from being the sole preserve of high-end broadcast professionals to reach all the way down the supply chain. This includes cheap children’s toys that create a cheap entry point for young kids looking to take to the skies. As the use of drones has grown exponentially around the world, another new ‘industry’ has struggled to keep up with them:
We currently use a 360 camera on all our confined space inspection machines. Because 360 footage is spherical by nature it is very difficult to miss anything within range of the camera, ensuring that everything of interest to our clients is not only safely captured, but also limiting exposure and time spent in potentially hazardous environments, directly applying this benefit to our clients.
We are stepping into the drone era and there is an undeniable need to upgrade the accuracy of these aerial vehicles. There are many uses for drones and today, we are talking about their implementation in the surveying and house building markets in the United Kingdom.
There are many reasons why roof inspections are needed on a constant basis. The roof of any building is always going to be one of the most important and valuable parts of the structure. It will determine how much money needs to b spent on repairs, and it will also determine how much value a property has depending on the conditions of the roof.
RUAS have recently partnered with asset integrity contractor Billfinger and Heliguy to complete an industry-first trial of L1 Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) sensor drone technology at Shell UK ‘s Bacton Gas Plant. Billfinger have recently published an article relating to the L1 trial.
Our waterborne ROV has two powerful, vectored, jet drives that allow it to work effectively in current without snagging any floating detritus. Basic payloads are aimed above the waterline for comprehensive video and imagery capture. However, sub-surface cameras and SONAR scanning is also an option below the surface, providing even more information for our clients. LIDAR is also an option in addition to various multi spectrum and stereo camera options, effectively removing any need to jeopardize workers in order to attain the highest in quality data capture.
