Drone to assess damage after disasters

Researchers of the University of Twente use a new method to list the damage after disasters. A remote-controlled drone with a normal camera takes a large amount of pictures of a building. From this, a 3D model is created, a point cloud from which the researchers can read geometric information. The drone can be employed after natural disasters or terrorist attacks in order to list damage to important infrastructural places, such as government buildings, hospitals, airports or bridges.
