senseFly’s Inspection 360

Inspection goes digital

Inspection can be tough, time consuming and potentially dangerous. So, when collecting the detail you require—whether of a facade, chimney or bridge deck—a little technological help can make a big difference.

That’s where drones come in. These aerial tools offer high-resolution insights, on demand; a shareable digital record you can use to assess and track a structure or building over time. All while keeping you safe from harm—no scaffolding, snooper trucks or rope access required.

For those looking to enjoy such benefits, senseFly’s Inspection 360 is the perfect starting point. This end-to-end solution includes all the proven drone hardware and industry-leading software you need to capture the data you require, safely and efficiently.

 

“senseFly and Pix4D offer a turnkey solution—from take-off to the final 3D model—which I would recommend. It avoids wasting time, plus you benefit from customer support which has proved very efficient.”
Yann Huet, Project Leader, Geotest

From flight planning to actionable data

With senseFly’s Inspection 360, collecting detailed, actionable data is a simple, step-by-step process. You just plan your flight—choose between a detailed ‘live’ inspection or an automated 3D mapping flight—then launch the albris, collect your data, and process its imagery to generate the exact data outputs you require.

 

“The Oregon DOT’s original goal was the capture high-res still images to check for defects, but when they realised we could get a 3D model—in effect a digital database of a structure—with the exact geometry of the object, that was something they were really excited about.”
Dan Gillins, Assistant Professor of Geomatics, Oregon State University

 

A world of applications

With its automatic and interactive flight modes, full situational awareness, and its uniquely powerful eMotion ground station software, the senseFly albris suits virtually every type of inspection task.
Whether assessing a bridge, a façade, a tower or a chimney stack—even surveying a small site—senseFly’s Inspection 360 delivers detailed, geo-accurate outputs that are compatible with all leading industry software.
