Details :

 After the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) - Aerosonde successfully flied across Atlantic Ocean on 20 August 1998, the world, at least the military world was start changing.  Development of the UAV is not only for survey and mapping purposes, but also a flying platform for different applications.  And the latest generation of commercially-available small UAV have very advanced capabilities in relation to their size and cost; this has directly led to a surge in their utilization for a wide range of survey and cinematographic tasks and an increasing demand for their employment in different sectors.


Conducting land survey by UAV is nothing new in the survey industry.  Having different payloads onboard, UAV could perform different kinds of mission promptly and effectively such as tree survey, heritage survey, building inspection and even bird counting which are not the traditional survey tasks.  An unlimited number of applications of UAV are being explored and Tommy Au will tell you more about the latest development of this technology.  No doubt about it, the dawn of a new era "Industry 4.0" or "the Forth Industrial Revolution" is emerging in this decade because of the appearance of this unmanned device.
