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.Learn More About 3D Scan
Inspecting dams and bridges can be a difficult task, requiring snooper trucks or climbers to inspect the underside of the structure. Even manual drones are unable to get reliable, high-quality footage of the underside of the structure due to their untrustworthy obstacle avoidance. With 3D Scan, a Skydio can autonomously scan the bridge and provide a detailed 3D reconstruction to help inspectors detect even the smallest cracks in concrete, while also opening up doors for digital twins and virtualized asset bases.
This model’s photos were taken with 3D Scan on a Skydio 2, and the reconstruction was performed using Bentley ContextCapture.
