New SkyeBrowse Hyper Drone App Captures 3D Accident Scenes
The American software company SkyeBrowse has developed a new tool that enables First Responders to capture an accident scene in 3D within minutes. The tool called Hyper first makes a drone fly autonomously above the location, after which it generates an accurate 3D reconstruction based on videogrammetry.
The importance of 3D reconstructions
Making 3D reconstructions based on drone recordings is an important application for, among others, researchers of traffic accidents. Such a 3D model can also be very valuable for the later analysis of a crime scene by the criminal investigation department. All sorts of measurements can be made in the model, and a scene can be viewed from all sides afterward. Another advantage is that a digital 3D reconstruction can easily be shared with remote team members.
But often, making a 3D model based on drone recordings is a time-consuming process: first, a waypoint mission has to be created on-site, after which the flight is performed, and…
