Faster/Greater Surveys: Introducing Camera Auto Mount Pivoting Oblique Surveys - Igor Campos, Technology Innovation Institute

The Camera Auto Mount Pivoting Oblique Survey (CAMPOS) is a new method for increasing the efficiency while performing UAS surveys, it can either increase the area a vehicle is able to cover in a single flight or reduce the flight time needed to map a given area when compared to traditional, nadir only surveys. This allows for doubling the efficiency in 2.5D mapping missions or even greater factors for surveys targeting the creation of 3D models. CAMPOS is essentially a software feature that intelligently changes the camera orientation between shots along a flight traverse in a surveying mission, allowing for an increased horizontal field of view, resulting in smaller flight paths through less lines. This means even existing UASs can benefit from this feature through a software update, the only requisite is that the camera mount is actuated on the roll axis, which is also an easy mod for fixed-wing vehicles. This work was peer reviewed and published at ISPRS XXIV Congress. Igor hopes to showcase this new feature that is a result of contributions to the PX4 and ArduPilot flight stacks, MAVLink protocol and the QGC ground control station. Hopefully this will increase the adoption of this valuable tool that became available before similar solutions from big players in the industry.
