Topcon's drone range offers accurate data gathering
The sophisticated drone models offered by Topcon Positioning have been made available through the firm’s partnership with Intel. These highly-advanced units are available in fixed wing or rotary versions, with features including triple redundancy to ensure reliability and prevent failures.
The units feature high resolution cameras, which offer accurate and comprehensive datasets for photogrammetry work. Chris Emery, Topcon’s business manager monitoring solutions, Europe said: “You get swathes of data for as-built or verification purposes.”
Combined with new analytical tools, this technology means that there is no longer a need to send personnel into high-risk working areas. Data can be quickly collected, analysed and used, for example, in the evaluation of real-time progress on construction operations or producing stockpile reports.
