Aerosense Co., Ltd.’s wired drone system Aerobo on Air is now on site for unmanned construction by a consortium such as Aktio Co., Ltd. It was used as a video production equipment necessary for construction machinery operation. Aerobo on Air has been used in live broadcasting sites, etc., taking advantage of its features such as long-time wired flight, safe and secure flight, and reliable video transmission, shown that it can play an active role.
At an unmanned construction site, it has become a problem that it is difficult to check the movement of the construction machine and the surrounding environment of the site when operating the construction machine from a remote location without a person directly riding on it. Aerobo on Air is a construction machine operator’s “eye” because it is possible to fly for a long time stably and adjust the image range flexibly with a proprietary composite cable, so to speak, an operator who is in a remote location and can see images of the surrounding environment including construction machinery and contributed to the realization of safe and efficient unmanned construction.
Features of Aerobo on Air
① Long flight by wired power supply
② Safe and secure flight with wired control
③ Remote transmission of low-delay, uncompressed aerial video by wired transmission is possible
(both bird’s-eye view video and detailed video with 30x zoom are also possible)
① [CONVENTIONAL ISSUE: WIRELESS DRONE DOES NOT HAVE ENOUGH FLIGHT TIME] ➡ REALIZE STABLE LONG FLIGHT WITH COMPOSITE CABLE
Since it is not possible to directly see the site at the unmanned construction site, it is difficult to determine the distance between the construction machines and where to move the construction machines. In addition, for safe construction, it is necessary to deliver an image of the surrounding environment to the construction machine operator at all times while the construction machine is in motion.
Aerobo On Air can fly for a long time because it is powered by a composite cable, and it also controls flight through this composite cable, so it can fly stably even at unmanned construction sites where wireless communication flies.
(2) [CONVENTIONAL ISSUE: IT IS DIFFICULT TO ADJUST THE IMAGE WITH A FIXED CAMERA] ➡ FREELY CHANGE THE AERIAL SHOOTING RANGE AND ALTITUDE ACCORDING TO THE MOVING SITE
In the case of fixed cameras, it is difficult to keep them in a high position, so it is necessary to install multiple fixed cameras in order to capture all the construction machines in the image. However, there was a problem that it was difficult to grasp the whole situation at once with multiple images, and it was difficult to know which image to watch.
Aerobo on Air can increase flight altitudes up to 90m. The flight altitude can be adjusted according to the movement of construction machinery, and a wide range can be captured in the image. In addition, since the camera can zoom up to 30 times, it is possible to take detailed images and deliver a variety of deep images to construction machinery operators.
③ [CONVENTIONAL ISSUE: CHECK LIVE VIDEO AT THE LOCATION OF THE DRONE] ➡ SIMULTANEOUS COMMUNICATION FROM THE HEAD OFFICE VIA NETWORK COMMUNICATION
With this Aerobo On Air, low-latency, uncompressed aerial video can be viewed even at remote locations by delivering on-site video in real time via a communication network. As a result, even in the case of Corona, the head office was able to see the same images as the people in the field and communicate closely, which contributed to the smooth progress management of the field.
Through the development, manufacture and sale of wired drone systems, Aerosense will not only continue to provide new video experiences, but will also contribute to improving the safety and productivity of unmanned construction sites.
