UAVs in the Polish High Tatra Mountains - demonstration
After initial consultations with TOPR, an experiment plan was developed to investigate the general operational limitations of off-the-shelf UAVs and to explore the detailed possibilities of carrying out remote inspections of hard-to-reach elements of the infrastructure under the care of the Border Guard. Ability to conduct safe flights in adverse conditions was assessed. In addition, a suggested method for developing automatic inspection routes was developed jointly with the Tatra Volunteer Search and Rescue (TOPR).
The demonstration was also an opportunity to conduct a photogrammetric experiment, in which an effective method was developed for capturing data (images useful for further processing to 2D and 3D) in terrain with significant height differences.
