A system for recording historic buildings using multiple unmanned aerial vehicles
Project co-financed by CESNET and Department of Cybernetics, FEL, CTU in Prague
Images of archeological sites or heritage buildings have been traditionaly captured using kites, balloons or even planes. Nowadays, Unmanned Aerical Vehicles (UAVs) are widely used in the heritage sector. For example, UAVs can be used for monitoring of sites, excavated objects or for analysis of roof conditions. UAVs can carry various sensors like high-resolution cameras or even laser scanners. This allows to create both still images, videos and data for off-line detailed analysis.
The goal of this project is to create a basic platform enabling the outdoor recording of heritage sites. This includes developments of SW for data capturing and processing as well as system for data sharing suitable for herigate sector.
