Manual vs Autonomous Detailed AERIAL INSPECTION

When you need to deploy the monitoring system based on drones, there is a choice between the manual and the automatic control schemes. The latter option is not yet widespread. Moreover, some people are suspicious of such advanced technologies. Let us figure out what problems, typical for manually controlled drones, can be solved with unmanned aircrafts (UAC).

Problems of the Manually Controlled Drones

Although usage of the drones helps to reduce the aerial inspection costs in comparison with traditional methods such as aerophotography, manually controlled devices still need the participation of the live operator. What problems does this case entail?

Firstly, it is not so easy to find a truly qualified pilot, and, moreover, their work is costly. Secondly, even experienced operators are not able to guarantee the safe service of drones in difficult weather conditions, with reduced visibility, and also in cases when monitoring areas have complex architectural or natural structures (for example, rocky terrain). Thirdly, even the most advanced controllers cannot provide the stable connection with drones at distances over a mile.

All these problems are solved with the help of the automated unmanned aerial systems (UAS).

Aeriosense – the Universal Solution for Unmanned Drone Management

Aeriosense provides a technologically advanced solution for the completely autonomous drone control. In this case, you do not need absolutely any help from the living operator, because all the controlled drones optimize their routes and behaviors individually, in real time, depending on the actual situation and preprogrammed triggers.

Here is a list of the tasks that drones are able to implement under the control by the Aeriosense system:

  • commence flight in the fully automatic mode;
  • adapt routes to the changing environmental conditions;
  • inspect large areas;
  • monitor the infrastructure objects in the conditions of reduced visibility.

Summary

In fact, replacing the live operators with Aeriosense system allows minimizing the influence of all the human factors (for example, at night or during the rain, the operator may not see a sudden obstacle and involuntarily provoke a damage to the drone). In addition, the capabilities of the integration with absolutely any third-party software (for example, with programs supplied by the drone manufacturers) makes the transition from manually controlled drones to the automated UAS extremely simply, cheaply and quickly.
