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.
Right of Way (ROW) Surveys are tricky but incredibly important to Power & Utilities companies looking to expand their power grid. Especially in areas with dense vegetation and tree growth, in these areas, photogrammetry cannot provide bare ground level elevations. Without a reliable DTM (Digital Terrain Model), the next set of substations and power lines cannot begin. This is where LiDAR comes in. Using drone-powered LiDAR -DJI Zenmuse L1, we were able to survey the modest stretch of land quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively.
Announced late last year, DJI’s first Livox LiDAR payload- the DJI Zenmuse L1- was set to change the game. The L1 comes seamlessly integrated with the DJI M-300 and DJI Terra software, giving you a completely self-sufficient ecosystem. We were excited to test out the new system and took it to the field as soon as we got it; here are our findings.
Precise & Rapid – These are some of the fundamental requirements of Geographic Systems. SfM (Structure from Motion) software is often at the core of drone photogrammetry; it is the method of choice for processing data from surveying, mapping and remote sensing. In this case study we will take a look into the issue of a ‘textureless’ desert and how DJI Zenmuse P1 solves this problem and makes mapping the deserts no longer a challenge.
From its announcement in October 2020, the DJI Zenmuse P1 has been making wakes in the photogrammetry world. Photogrammetry experts longed to get their hands on it and give it a try. Well, we managed to secure a demo unit and here’s what our experts had to say.
