Salt BarnYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
This salt barn holds salt that the city uses in the winter months to salt the roads. Flying near and around this salt barn would be very challenging for any other drone on the market because it is made out of metal. For legacy drone systems, the drones rely on a magnetometer which is a compass. This compass uses the earth’s natural electromagnetic field to get the drones direction. If large metal objects are present, the compass on the legacy drones will get confused and not fly properly–often leading to a crash. Skydio drones fly confidently in GPS-denied areas and through electromagnetic interference with 360-degree obstacle avoidance due to Skydio’s vision-based autonomous system. This autonomy system is running the entire time a 3D Scan is taking place so the operator does not have to worry about hitting any objects while the drone is autonomously flying around. This model features 170 photos stitched together in Bentley ContextCapture and contains incredible detail of the front and inside of the barn.
