IRIS begins processing field data

Tags : 

IRIS is currently processing all the information obtained during the fieldwork, which took place between late October and early November on the project plots of Aboyne (Scotland), Malpas (England) and Delft (The Netherlands).

From the thermal and visible photographs taken in the field, IRIS generates, using photogrammetric software, a 3D model of the work area. With this 3D model, and the thermal images captured, IRIS is able to identify and position the animals present in the area through their thermal responses. This makes it possible to assess the laser’s effectiveness objectively and precisely.

The company expects to continue taking images in Seville after November 27th.

IRIS visits Bird Control Group (BCG), en Delft (The Netherlands)

Tags : 

On Monday October 30th Santiago and Arturo from IRIS met with the Bird Control Group (BCG) team in Delft (The Netherlands). After discussing the current status of the project, they decided to carry out a drone test in a nearby field where BCG has installed an autonomous laser equipment.

Once they recorded the area with a video camera and with the DJI Phantom 3 drone they carried out the flight with the thermal camera installed in the Quasar multirotor.

Despite the bad weather, which delayed the work, the flight was completed successfully. Since this parcel was not included in the LIFE Laser Fence project, IRIS and BCG decided that a single flight was sufficient as a field test.
