Know exactly your bulk inventory.
We use two technologies to calculate the volume of bulk parcels accumulated in ports.
LiDAR: This is the use of a laser sensor that, by firing thousands of times per second, collects measurements and uses them to reproduce very accurate models (including 3D models) of maps or vegetation environments. LiDAR certifies the distance by measuring the time it takes for the laser pulse to reach the measured object and return to the drone. This feature makes it possible to obtain geospatial data for subsequent topographic surveys and in our case to calculate the volume of the bulk seen while flying over.
Photogrammetry: This is a technique that allows us, through the use of photographs and their post-processing combined with the geopositioning of the drone at the time of taking them, to calculate extension and volume creating highly accurate three- dimensional maps.
With the use of these maps, we can calculate the volume of the bulk parcels and their evolution since the previous shot was taken.
Photogrammetry is a less precise technique than LiDAR but more economical, and we use it when the client does not require that level of accuracy.
Advantages in the use of drones for calculating the volume of bulk port terminals:
Reduce time and cost whilst increasing quality.
Time is reduced.This technology allows for a considerable reduction in data collection times, speeding up operations. This advantage translates into a significant benefit for the customer, as delivery times are also reduced.
Costs are reduced. Of course, the less work that needs to be invested in the development of the work, the lower the costs for the client.
More precision. Capturing information with the flight of a drone means obtaining more precise data. This is yet another advantage, as the measurements obtained have an almost non-existent margin of error.
Más detalle y más calidad. Las imágenes que se obtienen con los drones proporcionan muchos más detalles e imágenes de mayor calidad.
Keep your personnel from harm’s way.
Access to any location. In traditional measurements, there are areas that are difficult to access, which makes it difficult and slows down the collection of data. With the use of drones, accurate information can be obtained from any location, regardless of the conditions of the terrain being worked on.
Increased safety for people: Here it is important to focus also on the safety of professionals, as risks are avoided in particularly steep terrain.
