Inspection, assessment and monitoring: a new workflow to improve long-term structural health
It’s been a busy day for the team as INTERGEO 2019 continues! As well as welcoming lots of dealers, customers, partners and those interested in learning more about Topcon’s transformative technology to the booth, we’ve also launched advancements across our portfolio of solutions and introduced the Topcon inspection, assessment and monitoring (IAM) workflow to the market.
UAV flight planning
Among the improvements announced today is the new flight planning software for Topcon’s rotary-wing UAVs. The new Intel Mission Control Software is designed to facilitate automated flight planning, managing missions, and data handling. The software enables increased accuracy with advanced mapping features, allowing site engineers to perform aerial inspections and easily set parameters and prepare missions.
MAGNET Collage Web 2
UAV operators can also take advantage of new cloud-based photogrammetry processing, powered by Bentley ContextCapture, with MAGNET Collage Web 2. This advanced technology ensures that stakeholders have direct access to UAV and inspection analysis of their assets without the need to install software or have a high-performance computer.
Delta Link version 2
We also announced the new Delta Link version two, which provides communications support for Topcon autonomous construction and structural health monitoring in the field. Set up via ethernet, Wi-Fi, or a globally approved integrated cellular modem, the system manages each power source, maximizing system availability.
Ian Stilgoe, vice president GeoPositioning Europe, Topcon Positioning Group, said: “Inspection, assessment and monitoring (IAM) is a crucial cycle to ensure the integrity of building assets. Topcon IAM solutions help to keep assets in operation, providing intuitive tools for site engineers to perform inspection and if any concerns are detected, a monitoring program can be implemented. The integrated approach ensures maximum performance of the infrastructure assets in a safe environment for operators and the public.”
