Abstract: Leveraging IoT and Drones to Produce Aerial Intelligence

Maps provide answers to all sorts of questions.  Aerial imagery is among the most valuable types of data used in mapping on account of the rich spatial information it provides both topographically and visually.  Drones have proven to be a cost-effective and efficient tool for collecting aerial imagery and in recent years there has been increased demand for drones that can cover more ground and fly beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) for large-area surveys, especially in Asia. The Delair UX11 is a professional unmanned aircraft system that is designed to support surveyors in flying more complex missions through IoT technology. The Delair UX11 leverages a worldwide network of cellular providers to establish a secure communication link between the drone and the ground control station.  This enables the operator to command and control the aircraft with virtually unlimited range BVLOS. Unlike traditional drone communication radios that can be obstructed by obstacles or signal interference, the Delair UX11 will maintain communications in the most challenging of urban environments and dissected terrain. Complete with in-the-field quality checks and survey-grade PPK positioning, this IoT drone will make you think bigger about drone mapping.
