Intel® Falcon™ 8+ Drone Inspection of 15th Century German Cathedral and Artwork

Through a series of indoor and outdoor missions on both automated and manual flight paths, the Intel® Falcon™ 8+ drone helped capture data that will inform next steps for restoration planning, ensuring the cathedral and its artwork withstand centuries to come.

Halberstadt Cathedral Data Sets

The conservators need to make a damage assessment to plan and commission restoration projects. To do this, they need a detailed 3D model and rectified mosaics of the statues with accurate surface textures. By using the Intel® Falcon™ 8 + drone with Sony A7R payload, several hundred detailed images of the statues inside, and, of the complete exterior of the building were taken. These images were taken through several post processing steps to get the deliverables.
