senseFly albris (previously eXom) – a sensor packed, intelligent, multirotor drone

eXomThere has been an exciting new release from the manufacturer of the popular eBee. The senseFly albris (previously eXom) is a new, sensor packed, intelligent, multirotor drone. It has a number of unique features that set it apart from other multirotors and make it ideal for inspection work, thermal applications, video capture and surveying applications.

The albris features a 38MP still camera that can also be used to collect HD video. A Thermal image can also be turned on, recorded and overlayed during flight. There is also a headlamp to assist in video capture, and a flash for photography.

To ensure safe use, the albris has 5 wide angle VGA navcams that point in different directions and collect video for situational awareness. These are coupled with sonar sensors that detect objects in close proximity and can be used to hold a fixed difference of objects while recording inspection data.

With a takeoff weight of just 1.8kg and a flight time of 22 minutes it is industry leading in light weight technology. senseFly believe that being lightweight is the key to portability, long flight times, ease of use and especially safety.

Powered by Pix4D technology, the included Postflight Terra 3D office software allows users to create orthomosaics, thermal maps, DEMs and 3D Models amongst other things. This new version of Terra 3D has many new features, but most importantly the orthomosaics and DEMs have been substantially improved, particularly around buildings and trees.

Trimble takes flight with a new multi-rotor UAS

ZX5Trimble has extended its unmanned aerial portfolio to include both fixed-wing and multi-rotor solutions, with the inclusion of the Trimble ZX5 Multi-rotor Unmanned Aircraft System. The ZX5 is a new aerial imaging and workflow solution that captures and processes geo-referenced photo and video data for mapping, agriculture and inspection applications. The Trimble ZX5 complements the UAS portfolio with the ability to reach smaller, remote environments faster, while providing accurate mapping data for improved productivity in the field and back office.

The ZX5 Multi-rotor is built for everyday jobs where image capture from tight spaces is common. Its vertical takeoff and landing capabilities allow users to work in tight places and obstructed environments where fixed-wing solutions are less suitable.

The ZX5 includes a 16 megapixel camera to capture high-quality aerial imagery, down to 1 mm ground sample distance. It can also be equipped to capture live video imagery for civil infrastructure, utility and oil and gas pipeline inspections.

Data captured by the ZX5 can be imported into Trimble Business Center Photogrammetry Module software to create detailed ortho-photos, digital elevation models, point clouds, volume calculations and 3D models, all without requiring specialised photogrammetry knowledge or experience.
