3DR, an international drone software specialist, has revealed its latest innovation.
The one-of-a-kind Site Scan system was built in collaboration with DJI and FLIR Systems and is designed to support flying autonomously with the DJI M210 dual gimbal drone, equipped with the Zenmuse X4S and the Zenmuse XT thermal camera, powered by FLIR.
“Site Scan’s unique ability to generate structurally detailed thermal point clouds is a brand new capability for our customers across engineering, construction, and mining,” said Chris Anderson, CEO of 3DR.
“Now, Site Scan users can easily inspect buildings, structures, and utilities, map solar arrays, monitor concrete curing, and much more. We’re excited to see how our customers put thermal imaging to work on their projects.”
Site Scan users just plan and execute their flight in Site Scan like normal, and the imagery from the M200 Series drone will automatically upload to the cloud and process into accurate thermal maps and models using Pix4D’s industry-leading thermal processing capabilities.
As part of this release, Site Scan users are also now able to fly with the XT camera using a single gimbal on any of the DJI M200 Series drones.
“As more enterprises deploy drones across their operations, many of them are realizing the impact thermal data can have on their sites,” said Jan Gasparic, head of enterprise partnerships at DJI.
“With the new thermal capabilities of 3DR’s Site Scan platform, these enterprises have a seamless and automated way to transition from a DJI M200 Series drone out in the field to meaningful analytics of thermal data in the office.”
