New flight mission for Cell Towers - the Helix

To make your drone flying experience with PIX4Dscan even better, we have created the Helix mission. It is made for capturing cell towers when no obstacles are present. This new mission replaces one cylinder and multiple orbits missions, cutting your capturing time to make your workflows more efficient.

That’s not all! The Helix mission also improves the quality of the digital twins, especially when specific drones such as the DJI Mavic 2 Pro are used.

How does it work?

The Helix mission is automated so you don’t have to do anything more than take the reference of the tower and define a few settings such as minimum height and mission radius. For more information, read our technical support documentation.

Remember that if obstacles such as vegetation, trees, buildings, or guy lines are present on your cell tower, then for better results, use the cylinder and multiple orbit missions instead.

Improved project creation wizard on PIX4Dinspect

The project creation wizard has been improved to make your project creations easier. After selecting your project images, they are represented on a map so that it's easier to identify if the wrong images were selected or if there are mixed images from different assets.

If the asset doesn't exist, it is easy to select a location for it thanks to the image location on the map. In the case of an existing asset around the area of the images, it will appear on the map and it can be directly selected using its marker.

Automatic image selection for Tower inventory items on PIX4Dinspect

With the help of the new AI algorithm, a relevant image for each Tower inventoryt iteam is automatically selected to help you catalogue your inventory. You don’t have to select and adjust the zooming and framing yourself anymore - our Tower inventory AI plugin will do all the job instead to save you more time and optimize your workflows.

On top of that, as soon as your project is processed, a PDF report can be generated, featuring complete information and a visual representation of inventory items without any manual input.
