How Drones Made a Significant Impact To The Medical Industry

Guest post by Amanda Shaffer from Advexure Aerial & Action Photography Systems

Some of the leading causes of death in the U.S. could be alleviated with the use of drone technology. Drone technology reduces downtime in delivery of medical supplies in war and disaster zones, rural areas and anywhere in a city where urgent medical response is needed.

First Drone Delivery Service

Healthcare clinics like Health Wagon have utilized drone technology to deliver medications to remote areas like Appalachia in partnership with the National Aeronautic and Space Administration (NASA) which was the first-ever drone delivery service approved by the the Federal Aviation Administration. The drone delivery service made it possible to deliver medications in 15 minutes instead of a 2-hour drive and lowered costs of the transport of medical items.

Ambulance Drones

Smart technology using drones with Automatic External Defibrillators (AED) have been proven effective in saving lives from cardiac arrest. These devices are better known as ambulance drones developed by Dutch interactive designer Alec Momont. The ambulance drones have a capacity to travel over 60 miles per hour and can reach a patient in a minute at a 7 mile zone.

Faster HIV Testing

The Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is prevalent among citizens living in sub-Saharan Africa, known as a disease-prone area. There are many basic health concerns and a shortage of health workers, but with drone deliveries of blood samples and medications shouldered by non-profit organizations and private agencies, these problems are beginning to be addressed, and the growing healthcare concern in the area is slowing.

Disaster Aid

Aside from addressing numerous health concerns, drones have been utilized as part of a search and rescue operations because of their accurate remote sensors which can detect trapped citizens in a collapsed building or help put out fire through specialized fire-spotting sensors. Drones can also calculate damage or weak spots from terrorist attacks or oil spills and map areas that are prone to earthquakes.

FAA requirements
While medical response is an urgent need for most healthcare organizations, FAA standards still need to be followed. FAA requirements for healthcare organizations who wish to use drones as part of their system include:

Drone Pilots Must Past The Medical Exam, Eligibility Requirements And The Course For Becoming A Certified Drone Pilot
Drones are considered aircrafts, so one must register via FAA website and make sure to fulfill all the requirements needed and pass the course to be a Certified Drone Pilot.

Your Drone Must Be Registered Under FAA For Commercial Use
Drones used for commercial or different purposes must be registered under FAA’s Part 107 Rule at a cost of $5 which is valid for 3 years. Waivers or accident reports are also issued under this rule.

Pilots Should Abide In Existing Rules In Drone Flying In The Particular Area
Safety procedures and limitations in drone flying implemented by the FAA should also be followed. The rules vary across each city.

Drone technology has given a more convenient and accurate way of research for prevention, safety and relief from disaster and healthcare problems. With the proper training, certification and aid of medical professionals, drones can significantly impact communities needing medical aid in a positive and empowering way.

Using A Drone To Rent Your Tiny House

JANUARY 24, 2018 ~ TRY IT TINY
Movie making has changed considerably over the past few years as filmmakers have begun to employ the use of iPhones and tablet devices. GoPro cameras mounted to handlebars and helmets have changed the first-person perspective. Most importantly though, the drone camera has given the user access to angles and perspectives that have historically been unavailable with a digital camera or prosumer video camera. One of the most prevalent uses of the commercial drone though has been the real estate market. In fact, the following five tips are a great reason to put down the camera and start flying a drone to rent your tiny house and/or property!

FLUID SHOTS

When someone is looking to rent a property they want to see it all. They want transparency. Is the site at the top of a hill with only a 6′ wide swath of gravel for access? Is the roof of the tiny house old rusty tin that may blow away with a good, swift breeze? Show off your listing with a sample video of the exterior. It is just as important as the interior. You know what they say. Location is everything! PRO TIP: drones with gimbals keep the camera eye steady as the aircraft flies overhead.

GIVE THEM DRAMA

A good portion of cinema is the emotion a scene evokes. Sometimes a rental has less to do with the property and more to do with the feeling the viewer gets. Using a drone allows you to up the drama by showing sweeping landscape shots and seamless fly-arounds of the exterior.

A PLACE IN THIS WORLD

Because drones are able to legally fly up to 400 ft. they are able to offer a unique perspective of where the property sits in relation to the community around it. Saying your tiny house is steps away from a stream filled with fish is very different from a drone flying straight up and showing that the creek is just a treeline away from the front door!

HIGHLIGHT REEL

If you advertise your property as being waterfront, show it. If you say the landscaping is impeccable, show it. Utilize sweeping fly around clips to show the viewer what they can expect their morning strolls to be like when they rent your property.

BECOME THE INDUSTRY STANDARD

While video is not yet available on Try It Tiny listings, you can produce equally breathtaking photos of your listing with just still images. Don’t post photos that are stale and represent “the norm”. Become the standard and advertise photos that show the sheer awesomeness of your property. If you do want to utilize video you can create a YouTube trailer and put a link to the video in your listing. Be creative!

Tiny House Drone

The visuals provided by drone cameras have impacted the way we see properties and the way we want to see them. Whether to highlight a waterfront view, a well-manicured garden, a view of a mountain range, or just seclusion, drone imaging can capture the beauty, utility, and uniqueness of a listing better than traditional photography or video ever has.

Utilizing Drone Mapping

Drones are most well known for taking aerial photographs and video.  Did you know software is also available to create 3-D maps?  In the construction industry, this software is especially helpful with monitoring progress and keeping all team members and stake holders up to date with the project.

When planning a project, drone mapping software can be of use to help create blueprints and plans.  Surveys of the land can be completed with the help of drones and these shareable maps make meetings between contractors, investors, and engineers easier to manage.  Communication is more effective when everyone involved can see exactly what is being referred to and can make notes and changes.

Use of Drone Maps

Mapping software can create high resolution 3-D, elevation, and orthomosaic maps.  The software even comes with user friendly measurement tools and real time annotation features that allow users with access to see adjustments made by their colleagues.  Drone services are priced exponentially lower than other map making services with similar results, saving both money and time.

As construction is underway, drone maps can be used to overlay plans.   Errors are quickly caught before they turn into bigger, more expensive problems and can be corrected early.  With team members able to share these maps and overlays, each member can identify what needs to be done on their end for smooth completion of the project.  A problem or miscalculation that might not show up until weeks into the project can now be spotted almost before it occurs.

Drones can provide construction companies a wealth of information that has not been available at an affordable cost before.  As drones make construction sites safer and more efficient, companies are able to save money and build their businesses.

How Drones Are Changing the Construction Industry

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), more commonly known as drones, are changing the construction industry drastically.  More and more companies are employing drones to perform crucial roles in several key areas, saving time and money and making the process more efficient and safer to boot.  Here are the top four ways that drones are impacting the construction industry.

1.  Land Use

Before a construction job can break ground, land-use planning often needs to be done.  Drones are able to add valuable information alongside surveyors on the ground. With drone imaging, better decisions can be made thanks to more specific, detailed information saving time and adjustments later on.

2.  Investors

In order to get investors and market a project, companies need to have great images, maps, and models to sell their project.  Drones technology can be used to create 3-D maps and overlays that enhance regular images.  Full aerial videos and photos are often taken at a fraction of the cost charged by aerial photographs in manned aircraft.

3.  Effective Management

Managing multiple construction sites at once is a much easier task when contractors have a drone available.  Drones allow for remote monitoring of progress to ensure operations are running according to schedule and safety regulations are followed.  Project managers are aware of activity and can step in as needed without getting the run around from crew members.

4.  Inspections

With drones, inspections can be completed safely and quickly.  You can look from every angle and check every corner of the construction project at any time without stopping work.  Instead of waiting for an inspection to tell you something has to be fixed, you can spot potential problems and make corrections as needed.

Drone Imaging and Real Estate

The majority of those looking to buy a house start their search online.  They decide which houses to visit based on the photos or video they see on their computer, tablets, or phones.  Real estate agents have started employing drones to capture the best images and videos of their listings to get these houses sold faster for top dollar.  Here are a few ways drones are changing the real estate business.

Bye, Bye Google Earth!

Before drones, the only way to view most houses from above was by using Google Earth.  The program provided grainy images that let you get a general feel for lot size and layout but no detail.  Realtorswould pay pilots to photograph million dollar homes but the cost of these services made using them for the average home pointless.  With affordable drone imaging, realtors can have almost every property photographed from above, giving their listings more appeal to potential buyers.

Show Off the Assets

Many houses are deceptive; they look much smaller than they are and buyers think there’s nothing special about that house and move on.  Ground photography fails to capture the scope of the house and property in many cases and finding a buyer proves difficult, especially if you can’t get them to walk through the door!  Drones are able to take aerial images and video, showing the large property, stables, barns, and additions that make these homes unique and worth owning.  Realtors have quickly learned that for these homes, drones are making all the difference in getting them sold.

Beyond the House

Buyers want to live in a town and neighborhood that feels welcoming and safe.  Drones can provide video of both that potential buyers can view to get a feel for the area they may call home.  Of course the house they’ll live in is important, but for many, the area is as, if not more, important.

As with other industries, drone use in real estate will soon be commonplace.  Drones are affordable and provide superior images that buyers can’t resist.  In the greater Indianapolis area, SkyView Aerial Imaging LLC provides the professional drone imaging your sellers need!  Our experienced pilots are ready to capture photos and videos to enhance any listing.  Contact us today!

Drones Improve Road Construction

Drones are being put to work across all sectors of the construction industry including road construction.  Paving companies, transportation departments, and surveyors are utilizing drones to improve their work.  Drones provide better images and specific data at a fraction of the cost of manned aircraft doing the same work.

Mapping Out the Details

Before the physical work on a job has started, drones are employed to provide an overview on the project.  Aerial videos and photographs allow contractors to identify the challenges their crews will face before they encounter them.  Teams are away of potential hazards awaiting them and can take steps to prevent injury or damage to expensive equipment.  Better preparation makes for safer, more efficient work and quicker completion of each project.

Monitoring Progress

Drones continue their work throughout the project.  Once ground has broken, drones can be used to monitor crews, ensuring that work is done and materials are allocated properly.  Any necessary adjustments can be made much quicker when drone images are available and managers or contractors are able to keep an eye on numerous crews over large distances without being physically present, saving time and money.

Ensuring Performance

As technology continues the shift from 2-D to 3-D, drone imaging allows detailed 3-D designs and maps to be created.  Once a job is finished, an overlay of the completed projected can be shown with the original blueprints and design to show that the work was done according to plan.  Governments and organizations funding these road construction projects have superior data to support spending, and contractors are able to showcase their ability to complete projects as requested.

Drones provide a much safer, cheaper, and more efficient way to collect data and gather images and videos of road construction projects and surveys than any other method.  Drones continue to grow in popularity with the construction industry, and the benefits of their use seem endless.  For professional drone pilots, aerial imaging, and videography in based Indianapolis, Indiana SkyView Aerial Imaging LLC has the experience and equipment your construction projects need.  Contact SkyView today to find out what we can do for you!

Understanding Drones

Drone technology continues to advance and is increasingly popular for both private use and for business applications.  Drones are being employed in the construction industry and the number of companies utilizing this technology is growing exponentially.  The benefits drones bring to the jobsite are numerous, but do you know how they really work?

Drones are small, unmanned aircraft that are powered remotely.  The more advanced models can be controlled through a computer program while other models more popular with the hobby flyer use a hand controller.  The ability to hover, navigate, and fly without constant pilot input separates these machines from remote control aircraft.

Drones are crafted from lightweight materials and are built to capture aerial images and video.  Drones with more propellers are safer than drones with just one and can carry more weight.  With multiple propellers, the rotors can be smaller, making the aircraft safer and easier to manage.  In order to produce quality imaging material, drones are constructed to minimize background noise and vibration, no matter how many propellers they have.

Higher quality machines are able to be programmed with a flight route, making monitoring of a construction site simple and efficient.  Drones are capable of flying in almost all weather conditions and are inexpensive to operate.  Learning how to fly a drone takes time and practice but as drones continue to be put to good use, skilled pilots are finding themselves in high demand.

Sky View Aerial Imaging, LLC is the premier drone business in the area, providing aerial images and videos for our many customers, primarily construction companies.  We offer a range of services and with our top of the line equipment, never fail to deliver.  If you want to learn more about our work and what we can do for you, contact us today!

Cold Weather and Drones

Flying drones during the cold winter months can present a challenge for even the most experienced remote pilots. SkyView Aerial Imaging knows that when you’re out working, you need us to be too. Fortunately, we’ve mastered the tricks to get the images you need no matter what Mother Nature throws our way.
Frigid Air

When the wind picks up, a drone’s batteries will drain faster than normal. Because more power is needed to get through these gusts, flight times need to be adjusted. In the winter months the cold temperatures also cause batteries to lose their charge at a quicker rate than when flying in the heat of summer. Plenty of backup batteries are needed as well as a constant eye on battery life to keep the drone safe. To combat this, drone batteries need to be kept warm and some models even have a warning that issues when the temperature of the battery falls below a certain threshold.

Rain and Snow

Not only does air temperature and movement affect the drones, but precipitation can wreak havoc as well. Few drones are water resistant and flying in wet conditions is a recipe for disaster. Snow is better than rain for the drone to fly in but as fallen snow melts, damage can occur to the electronics and batteries. Proper maintenance and attention to drying parts completely is needed to utilize drones when the snow is falling.

When you need images and you need them now, waiting for the weather to clear isn’t an option. SkyView Aerial Imaging has the flying experience needed to make sure the job gets done. Professional piloting, high quality images and video, and top of the line equipment means SkyView is the right choice to fill your aerial imaging needs. Come snow or sun, heat waves of frozen temperatures, SkyView is ready to fly for you!

Tips for Capturing Better Aerial Photos

Auto Exposure Bracketing (AEB)

Auto Exposure Bracketing Mode takes several photos if the same subject at different exposures, allowing you to capture multiple photos of the same shot with a various range of exposure values (EV), so you can choose your favorite version of your shot later.

AEB mode gives you the freedom to stop worrying about choosing the correct exposure before taking the shot.

This mode also allows you to create HDR (High Dynamic Range) photos, which have a luminosity unachievable with most other photo capturing methods.

RAW Format

Shooting your photos in RAW format will store your photos as RAW files, also known as digital negatives. This format, unlike JPEG or TIFF files, stores your photos uncompressed and unprocessed. In other words, RAW files contain all the pixel information you captured through your camera lens.

Because RAW formatted files contain so much raw information, these shots are detailed and as high quality as possible. This allows you much more creativity when processing your photos. RAW files are perfect for changing and fine-tuning everything from highlights and color correction to bit depth.

Best Time of Day to Shoot

The angle of the sun and the presence of clouds, fog, or other weather can dramatically affect your aerial photos.

You usually want to avoid taking aerial shots at noon because the sun’s position will limit the shadows and highlight contrasts possible. Most people may think that cloudless days are the best for aerial photo shoots, but actually clouds and other weather can sometimes provide dramatic interest.

At Sky View Aerial Imaging, we consider the best mode to shoot, the best format, and the best time of day to capture aerial photos for your specific project. We use the most innovative drone technology and photography techniques in all our photo sessions.

Discover how we can provide quality, state-of-the-art aerial imaging your business by calling today!
