The drones are coming | De drones komen eraan
Small drones are becoming increasingly popular for tasks ranging from inspection of hydro lines to spraying of crops. Critics warn of an airspace teeming with these unmanned aircraft. Join a flight with Canadian drone maker Aeryon Labs.
High-tech robots being developed by a group of scientists near Medicine Hat, Alta., could soon be used to detect leaks in pipelines or avalanches in the mountains.
The drones are being developed at Canadian Forces Base Suffield to use overseas for gathering information or carrying cargo.
Gathering aerial imagery using the Aeryon Scout is faster, more accurate, and more cost effective than satellites, manned aircraft or ground-based measurements. Geotagged images and easy-to-use software enables automated image processing into 2D image mosaics and maps, digital elevation and 3D models, and more, using integrated software or other industry standard GIS tools.
