Drone platform adds on-site roof measurements and damage detection

June 5th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Loveland Innovations added enhancements to its inspection platform, Imging, including drone-based on-site measurements, AI and deep learning-powered damage detection for commercial roofs, and other powerful updates. A real-time measurement process built into the app, allows field adjusters and roofing estimators to view and share dynamic measurements on an Apple iOS tablet while they are still on-site with customers. The tool provides measurements shortly after a drone flight is completed for most residential roofs. The latest update also includes a beta release of enhancements to the deep learning framework, Imging Detect, which automatically finds roof damage on drone inspection images. The app can now find the various types of damage on commercial or residential roofs, including blistering on flat roofs, evidence of ponding water, cracking and alligatoring, exposed underlayment, rust and soft metal damage. Other updates include an inspection tool that ensures consistent ground-based imagery across every inspection, and the ability to measure any area within an 2,5 cm accuracy on a 3D model. Imging is available as a complete software and hardware solution or as an app that runs on an Apple iPad or iPhone. It is compatible with the DJI Phantom 4 Pro and the Mavic 2 Pro.
