Corridor mapping using a VTOL drone

November 7th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

The new corridor mapping feature in the latest (1.10) Wingtra flight planning software release enables fast, efficient coverage of long, narrow stretches with either of WingtraOne’s RX1R II or QX1 payloads. Customers can now enjoy the broad coverage and vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) operational flexibility that the company is known for when running large, linear plans. Wingtra corridor drone mapping features bring a new level of efficiency, as well as high accuracy and resolution, to the following types of aerial mapping projects, including road construction, inspection or maintenance; railway track monitoring and inspection; pipeline and power line inspection; and environmental research such as river mapping. The corridor mapping software feature offers options for beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) or visual line of sight (VLOS) operation, depending on local regulations. For BVLOS corridor mapping plans can cover 6 to 8 km in one flight, and for VLOS, each leg will measure around 2 to 3 km. This latest 1.10 Wingtra release also features improved, softer landings; enhanced user-drone communication around PPK status and high altitudes; special control for flight close to the Earth’s magnetic poles, and a leaner WingtraPilot planning page with a more seamless in-flight display.
