3D Imaging in a Swarm of Drones

Friday, March 11
5:00PM - 6:00PM

Palmer Events Center
Room 1-2
900 Barton Springs Rd

An intelligent swarm of flying drones can be applied to solve 3D modeling. We will demonstrate a method for building a swarm of intelligent drones that can can coordinate together to create high definition / high quality 3D models of structures, sculpture, and geographic features. Attendees will be introduced to the software and methods for creating 3D models using still camera imagery and the intelligent swarm of drones used to capture the images. We will discuss the future and need of high quality modeling in nature and finish with a discussion on where to go next.
