The creation of a digital twin of the De Francesci pier using ROV and UAV technology has resulted in an accurate 3D model of the pier’s structure and surface under the sea.
The total area of the pier that needed to be recorded was 3,396.46 square meters, and it took a total of 8 hours to collect all the necessary data.
The processing of the data took 64 hours, and it required the services of a technician on site and an air drone operator.
The first step in creating the 3D model was to use automatically navigated divers (ROV) to record the entire area under the sea.
This was done to ensure that every detail of the pier’s surface was captured, and the images collected were of high quality and resolution.
The images were then used to create a point cloud, which is a set of data points that represent the surface of the pier.
Digital Twin Created with ROV and UAV for Property Maintenance
The point cloud was then used to create a 3D model of the pier.
To do this, the sea was digitally removed from the environment, which allowed for a more detailed inspection of the pier’s structure.
The 3D model was created using specialized software, which allowed for the manipulation of the data points to create a virtual representation of the pier.
The final product was a 3D model that accurately represents the pier under the sea.
The model includes every detail of the pier’s surface, and it can be used to predict potential hazards and identify areas that require maintenance or repair.
The model is also useful for planning future construction or modifications to the pier.
This model is a valuable tool for property maintenance and management, and it will help to ensure the safety and longevity of the pier for years to come.
