UAV enabled “Real-time Dynamic Mapping System” delivered an innovative service to let users see “live maps” of surging waves, spreading fire, growing crops, migrating animals, running lava, moving pedestrians, flowing traffic within milliseconds.

Date and Time

29 September 2017 - 19:00-20:00

Kowloon Tong, Hong Kong - icon_popup  (See map)

Organiser

Organised by the E & S.E Asia:Hong Kong local network.


About this event

“Real-time dynamic mapping system” updates maps and geographic information in milliseconds. Users will see "live maps" with surging waves, spreading fire, growing crops,  migrating animals, running lava, moving pedestrians, flowing traffic in contrast to static satellite images in traditional map services provide by Google, Yahoo and Baidu, etc. that would only be updated by months/years. The map has multiple zooming levels to aggregate and present information on different scales.  “Dawn”, an electric powered multi-rotors drone (or Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, UAV) with revolutionary design, capable to cruise and collect data and aerial images even in extreme conditions like plateaus, snow mountains and deserts. When paired with the UAV ground station, the solution will be able to deliver advanced features like autopilot and one-click surveying and mapping.  An overview of local regulations and applications of UAV will also be presented in the introduction of the seminar.
