Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) technology developer Skyfish today introduced the company’s computing platform for commercial drones that fully automates crucial infrastructure inspection and measurement tasks for the first time, giving drone service, communication infrastructure, and energy providers unrivaled performance and accuracy. The Skyfish platform was unveiled and is being demonstrated at Booth #133 at the Commercial UAV Expo Americas conference being held October 1-3 in Las Vegas. Skyfish supports DJI and PixHawk flight controllers and other popular drone architectures, as well as 3D modeling software from companies such as Bentley Systems Inc.
Skyfish provides a smarter platform so anyone can fly, inspect, and model complex infrastructure with an easy-to-use interface. The platform also pre-processes the collected infrastructure data and metadata to help create impeccable 3D models.
“The Skyfish platform represents a sea-change in commercial drone technology for infrastructure inspection, measurement, and analysis,” said Mike Barkasi, Project Manager at infrastructure software development company Bentley Systems. “For our infrastructure customers that want to enable the benefits of drone sourced data – but need engineering grade accuracy for their 3D modeling – I believe leveraging both the Skyfish and Bentley platforms together is a good answer.”
