3-D MODELS OF MONUMENTS USING UNMANNED AIRCRAFT
A new imaging system produces 3-D models of monuments using unmanned aircraft
* To develop this system, University of Granada researchers used an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), which is an aircraft without a human pilot onboard.
* This system produces a realistic reproduction of architectural models at a low cost.
University of Granada researchers have developed a 3D imaging system that scans 3D models of historical buildings using data obtained from an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)–an aircraft without a human pilot onboard. This is the first 3D imaging system to combine the use of UAVs, image-based 3D modeling technologies, and virtual representation of models to produce a realistic modeling of 3D objects from images.
