We present you this article owing to the fact that we live in a DIY Era and there is NO better alternative to powerline inspection than a drone powerline inspection! So, how would a typical drone-based powerline inspection looks like? Let’s find out.
Have you ever sighed at the thought of surveying a large parcel of land? In the past, that is usually where drones come into the picture. Drones are just perfect for surveying and mapping— they fly over large areas in minutes to hours, they take pictures or videos from different angles, they keep you from having to traverse the dangerous terrain.
As surveying drones become more and more common with each passing day, let’s ask the question: how important are drones in your surveying and mapping operation?
For a multitude of reasons, DJI’s first Livox LiDAR payload — the Zenmuse L1, is gaining a lot of traction among drone professionals. First of all, the DJI Zenmuse L1 incorporates the powers of both laser and visible light; this payload can simultaneously capture both LiDAR and Photogrammetry data. L1 is well known for capturing ‘accuracy’ by integrating a Livox LiDAR module, a high-accuracy IMU, a survey-grade camera, and additionally, it comes with a 3-axis stabilized gimbal. Well, not just that, there is a lot more to explore on this unparalleled player in the Drone-based solutions!
While integrating a new system into current workflows may seem like a headache right now, the benefits quickly make up the difference and then some more. For example, the traditional inspection methods are time-consuming, expensive, and out-of-date. Read more on the downsides of traditional powerline inspections here. In this article, we’ll be exploring the Drone Powerline Inspections – why drones are the superior choice.
DJI, the world’s leading manufacturer of drones, has just announced a brand new commercial drone – the DJI M30 Series. This is a significant release for DJI as it represents their first foray into the realm of large-scale drones. The M30 Series are packed with features and promises to be a game-changer for those in the commercial drone industry. In this blog post, we will explore some of the key features and changes that make the M30 Series so special.
There is no doubt that DJI’s Matrice 300 RTK has set a new standard for the commercial drone industry. With its array of purposeful and powerful features combined with a robust build, you’d be hard-pressed to find better. However, this isn’t an article where we discuss the features of the M300 RTK — there are plenty of those already; in this article, we will be discussing why the pilots at FEDS-drone Powered Solutions love working with this powerful drone system.
Firefighters have long braved hair-raising and dangerous situations, combating fires and saving lives. But, while this has been the norm for years— it no longer has to be with drones. The idea of rushing into unknown hazards and danger is what drones are here to change and improve fire and safety.
In an urgent response situation, the team and authorities are working against the clock. Traveling to the incident site, establishing situational awareness, and requesting additional resources all take time- precious time that can save lives. While traditional teams have to deal with road conditions, distance, and longer deployment times, drones do not. Emergency Response Drones are life savers. Emergency response teams are now leveraging drones to save lives, improve response times and optimize resource allocation.
Remote sensing drones remove the guesswork from agriculture. They provide you with precise knowledge of your crops. You can then use this data or knowledge to allocate resources efficiently. Drones are the favored tool to obtain this data, but drones’ lesser-known application is the ability to act on this data. These drones are known as ‘spraying drones’ or agricultural drones. Let’s explore the DJI Agras.
The much anticipated Mavic 3 and Mavic 3 CINE have just launched, and it is positively the prosumer drone to dethrone them all. DJI builds on the features that were great about the Mavic 2 and made it better in the Mavic 3 while somehow maintaining the size and (even reducing) the drone’s weight. So let’s take a look at what makes the DJI Mavic 3 a must-have.
