Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR AUTONOMOUS IMAGING AND STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS D'IMAGERIE AUTONOME ET D'ANALYSE STRUCTURELLE
Abstract:
(EN) An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) assessment and reporting system may utilize one or more scanning techniques to provide useful assessments and/or reports for structures and other objects. The scanning techniques may be performed in sequence and optionally used to further fine-tune each subsequent scan. The system may include shadow elimination, annotation, and/or reduction for the UAV itself and/or other objects. A UAV may be used to determine a pitch of roof of a structure. The pitch of the roof may be used to fine-tune subsequent scanning and data capture to capture perpendicular images at target fields of view and/or target distances to capture images of sample regions having defined lengths, widths, areas, and/or other defined dimensions.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système d'évaluation et de rapport de véhicule aérien sans pilote (UAV) qui peut utiliser une ou plusieurs techniques de balayage pour fournir des évaluations et/ou des rapports utiles pour des structures et d'autres objets. Les techniques de balayage peuvent être effectuées en séquence et éventuellement utilisées pour affiner ultérieurement chaque balayage ultérieur. Le système peut comprendre une élimination d'ombre, une annotation et/ou une réduction de l'UAV lui-même et/ou d'autres objets. Un UAV peut être utilisé pour déterminer un pas de toit d'une structure. Le pas du toit peut être utilisé pour affiner un balayage ultérieur et une capture de données pour capturer des images perpendiculaires au niveau de champs de vision cibles et/ou de distances cibles pour capturer des images de régions d'échantillon ayant des longueurs, des largeurs, des zones et/ou d'autres dimensions définies.
