Cost effective Construction Monitoring using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
Detailed monitoring of construction sites as they evolve has been made possible by georeferenced orthophotos taken from our Fixed wing or Quadcopters and 3D data from our Pix4D software . You’re able to view the as built situation of your site in real time which ensures up to date measurements and targeted analysis making overseeing site productivity and giving you access to virtual inspections and increased efficiency
Monitor Large sites weekly Upload all information into the cloud for all relevant parties to examine . Great for weekly progress reports
High Definition Photos of the construction site enables the clients to document progress closely and avoid disputes down the line .
Allows for close visual inspection of the site to allow for monitoring and checking adherence to planning guidelines and Environmental impact guidelines
Pix4d software allows for accurate monitoring with high precision GPS measurements within 25mm
By the beginning of 2015,there were nearly 270,000 wind turbines operating globally .The more than 800,000 blades spinning on these turbines are battered by the elements over time and gradually wear out .Deterioration can cause reduced energy production and catastrophic and costly blade collapse if left unnoticed .A new approach using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs),is rapidly becoming the inspection tool of the future.
Types of inspections include
1 Turbine blade Leading edge Erosion Inspections
2 Identification of Blade defects
3 Blade Wrinkling and dry Glass
4 Turbine Blade lightning Receptor Inspection
5 Tower and Nacelle inspections
Atlantic Integrity group can offer Optical Digital Photography,Photogrammetry and thermal imagery using our Unmanned aerial vehicle with qualified inspection Engineers at a cost effective price.
Atlantic integrity group were asked by a private client to carry out a case study along there river bank due to flooding which occurred. The Deel river broke its banks in December 2015 with devastating consequences. The case study which carried out a ground survey using high precision GPS and aerial survey using our Unmanned aerial vehicle captured high resolution data. Results were a contour survey of the area along the banks and a Digital surface model which in the future can help the design of flood relief measures. More case studies like this upstream would be useful in identifying possible Natural flood measures which would help alleviate flooding in the near term with community involvement and government support.
In the UK already there has being success with Natural flood management and these techniques include the restoration, enhancement and alteration of natural features and characteristics, but exclude traditional flood defence engineering that works against or disrupts these natural processes.
Atlantic integrity group were asked by mayo co.co to carry out an aerial survey using our UAV and to create a digital surface model with point clouds and orthomosiacs.
The main aim was to monitor previous cells settlement and to calculate the remaining void space in the remaining cell. The project involved carrying out a ground survey with high precision GPS as ground points and then flown with our UAV to capture high resolution data for the client.
This gave the client an idea of how much landfill it would require to fill the cell and could give a timescale on the cell being capped.
