(Headquarters: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo; Representative Director: Chohei Toshita; hereinafter: FLIGHTS) will hold a free webinar on “UAV Laser Measurement [Basic]” on August 23 (Wed) from 17:00 onwards. A former construction consultant will give an in-depth explanation of the basics, advantages and disadvantages of drone laser surveying.
In recent years, the domestic civil engineering surveying industry has been promoting i-Construction utilizing ICT technology, and UAV laser surveying is becoming one of the options. On the other hand, since it is still the technology of the future, there may be some people who haven’t taken the first step yet because they don’t know exactly what kind of technology it is or what kind of site it is suitable for.
Therefore, we have organized a session where an engineer who has worked as a construction consultant at FLIGHTS will introduce you to the basics of UAV lasers, as well as their advantages and disadvantages. It is mainly aimed at people with experience in UAV photogrammetry, explaining UAV laser technology and more.
