Shenzhen to Use Unmanned Drones to Take Aerial Photographs of Qianhai
Shenzhen will start using drones or unmanned aviation vehicles to collect data that they will need to record the changes in Qianhai. The assistant chief engineer for the Shenzhen Investigation and Research Institute Lu Yonghua, said that unmanned drones are increasingly being applied in non military purposes and in low altitude photogrammetry in Bao’an, Yantian and Pingshan New Area. These unmanned drones are starting to play an important role in collecting geological data that are used in mapping, urban planning, marine monitoring and land resources administration.
Photogrammetry technology is being developed jointly by the Shenzhen Investigation and Research Institute and the Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences that will allow them to accomplish multiple low altitude photogrammertry which generates a three dimensional scene from aerial photographs. Furthermore unmanned drones are also being applied to civil purposes such as ocean monitoring and environmental protection.
Unmanned drones will also be likely to used in the aerospace industry development as that aerospace industry plan is released that will bolster the development of drones in the city as a unmanned aerial vehicles industry base will be created. The city also has dozens of enterprises that are using unmanned drones in their research and production.
