Client’s Challenges with UAV and LiDAR Project

The client was looking to partner with a company with vast knowledge and experience in measuring the railway area and length of 600 Kms or 250 yards through LiDAR, from satellite images taken with Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). They held hands with BackOffice Pro and received the best output as per their requirements.

Custom-made Approach of Back office Pro for the UAV and LiDAR

Once we successfully passed the trial of the 2.2 km railroad, the client sent the input files as satellite images and blank LAZ files, and the highlight of the scope. Based on the reference, a team of eight engineers scaled the images, measured the distance of 250 railway yards, and highlighted it. Within one and a half months, we accomplished the project and shared the filled LAZ files with all the highlighted paths and measurements between the railway tracks with an accuracy of 3-4 meters ±, as mutually agreed by the client. The client was happy with the output.

Achieving the proper highlights on the railroad of 2.2 km from the input file was a challenge during the trial phase. However, working on the feedback of the client, we re-worked it and got the accurate output.

UAV and LiDAR Project Takeaways

The client received accurate measurement and highlight on the railroad and a 40% benefit on cost within the stipulated timeframe. They were highly satisfied with the output from the highly skilled, trained, and experienced resources of Back Office Pro
