3D Tower Capture - Telecom Cell Tower

Inspecting telecom towers by climbing remains dangerous and expensive, while inspecting assets from the ground is inaccurate. Drones have proven themselves to exceed the requirements of the industry both in accuracy and affordability; however, data capture with manual drones doesn’t scale when you have thousands of towers to inspect. Enter 3D Tower Capture: an autonomous capture mode of Skydio 3D Scan optimized for vertical structures. This enables faster and easier setup, more efficient autonomous capture, and more reliable photogrammetry processing. And, as has always been the case, you can export all 3D Scan photos with full metadata to any third-party photogrammetry software to create 3D models, such as Bentley ContextCapture in the case of the example below.

This model was captured autonomously by Skydio 3D Scan. 3D Scan is a first-of-its-kind adaptive scanning software built on top of Skydio Autonomy. It allows the drone to automate data capture for generating 3D models with comprehensive coverage and ultra-high resolution, so that crews can perform higher quality scans in less time and with minimal pilot training.
