Aibot X6 UAV celebrates 5 years of redefining surveying, inspections workflows with enhanced offerings
Aibotix presents new features during INTERGEO 2016
Aibotix, the leading provider of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) solutions, will present the latest innovations in UAV technology in celebration of the five-year anniversary of the Aibot X6 UAV at INTERGEO 2016 at Hall A3, Booth D3.033.
Since 2011, organisations around the world have come to rely on the accuracy and advanced technology of the Aibot X6 UAV and its accompanying software, Aibotix AiProFlight. Bringing significant reductions in costs and time spent on projects all over the world, both software and UAV have been redefining workflows for aerial data capturing.
“The way surveyors and inspection professionals are working has changed significantly during the last five years,” says Lothar Assenmacher, managing director. “The success of UAVs like the Aibot X6 is not only capturing aerial data but saving time and costs. We have been able to develop new features that complete the system, enabling us to offer everyone the opportunity to invest in the latest technology for aerial surveying and inspection. ”
Autonomous data acquisition enters a new era
Aibotix recently introduced the redesign of Aibotix AiProFlight as well as a broad range of fully integrated standard sensors. At INTERGEO 2016, Aibotix introduces the next step to make the workflow even simpler with three new features to increase productivity and simplify aerial data capture missions. First, the new StoreIn Flight option enables users to store up to 1,500 waypoints on the UAV. This feature allows users to upload very large missions and project data with just one click. The option allows to execute missions automatically and independent from battery capacity, saving time and effort.
Next, with the new TeachIn Flight option, the UAV stores camera and recording position during manual flights, which are the crucial inspection parameters. In a second step, the user can transfer the manual flight into a flight plan for an autonomous flight. This enables users to repeat missions with little planning at the same location at any time, saving time and significantly simplifying data acquisition.
Finally, 3D Visual, the new viewing module, gives pilots a means to visualise their flights in two separate windows – in on-top view and in a height profile. With a more detailed way of planning missions, particularly in rough terrain structures with varying heights or for inspection missions with complex structures.
“These new features in the Aibot X6 UAV and AiProFlight software provide for results-oriented and time-saving processing of large projects,” explains Tom Rudolph, director Research & Development. “Especially professionals in areas like surveying, construction and monitoring will benefit from these latest developments. Standardised workflows and less processing time will be the visible results.”
