Drones on projects
« on: July 26, 2017, 08:49:00 am »
Anyone using a drone for their project?

The photography side of it would be a no brainer.

Current environment of commercial use is too risky for us.

We have a survey/scanning division for that.  They handle point cloud scanning from stationary and vehicle-borne laser scanners, as well as drone-based scanning.  They've acquired a full commercial operating license so they can go pretty much anywhere.
If you are going to fly by the seat of your pants, expect friction burns.

Very cool.

I wonder how long it will be until we see google drones flying by. :)

Not for a LONGGGGG time, the privacy implications will throw millions into a frenzy.

I understand the Drones with privacy but what about "scanners" in general?

Check out this marketing video.

Whenever the camera is moving, the footage was taken with a drone.

I ran this interiors project last year. The stair and green wall behind the guy and girl speaking is also my work.

We're in the same boat except we are the survey/scanning division.

Running a mini-drone in that atrium would have been a lot simpler and faster than the old way with a camera boom system or hydraulic lift.

Wait a minute!!!!

What kind of Drones are we talking about? 
The two legged kind?  Or the ones that fly?
