Drone-based aerial inspection of railway yard

Phase One has released a case study showing how its medium format camera has been used as part of a drone-based inspection solution for airborne inspection of railway-mounted automated storage cranes, reducing the downtime that would be required by manned ground inspection. The solution combines the DJI M600 Pro drone with the Phase One Industrial iXM-100 medium format camera.

The case study covers:

  • How the drone solution achieves a large image width of 7.7 m with a resolution of up to 1 mm
  • The advantages of this new method over traditional surveying methods
  • How the system adapts the flight path of the drone depending on the current position and velocity of the cranes

To find out more about how Phase One’s drone camera solutions can be used for inspection of critical infrastructure in operation, read the full case study on Phase One’s website.
