Leading engineering firms and departments of transportation deploy Intel’s commercial drone technology for inspections of two iconic US bridges. See how the hardware and software solutions from Intel work in combination to offer a powerful aerial data solution that is more efficient, accurate, and safer than traditional inspection methods.
Intel® Drone Services and Solutions inspect and build a 3d digital twin of the city Church St. Katharina in Hirschberg, Germany to aid in conservation efforts. The Intel® Falcon™ 8+ drone combined with Intel® Mission Control Software is able to execute automated aerial missions utilizing the city grid, façade, and tower functions. The automated data capture takes 1 hour versus traditional manual inspections requiring scaffolding, placing workers at greater risk, and needing days to weeks to perform the inspection. Intel® Insight Platform creates a detailed, accurate digital twin for use in conservation, maintenance, and repair.
Intel drone technology aids in the effort to preserve architectural structures of cultural and historic significance such as the Hwahongmun Gate of South Korea’s Suwon Hwaseong fortress. Intel® Mission Control Software, coupled with the Intel® Falcon™ 8+ drone was used to inspect, survey, and construct a detailed digital 3D model of the Suwon Hwahongmun Gate.
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.
Intel and the center for Robot-Assisted Search and rescue at Texas A&M University highlight cutting-edge drone technology helping to preserve the safety of human lives.
The Intel® Falcon™ 8+ system is transforming the way companies like Cyberhawk perform inspections. See how Cyberhawk reduces injury risk, decreases downtime, and creates cost savings by inspecting with the Intel® Falcon™ 8+ drone without shutting down production.
To aid in productivity, performance and safety the Intel® Falcon™ 8+ captured high-quality RGB and thermal inspection images of four flare tips in one afternoon, saving Santos shutdown costs of roughly $50,000 AUD. Additionally, they were able to acquire 473 images for use in 3D sample modeling and predictive analytics.
