Drone metrology

DFM’s project on Drone metrology is funded by the Danish Agency for Institutions and Educational Grants (GTS performance contract). In this project, DFM focuses on establishing metrological traceability for various drone-based measurement techniques. This includes quantitative dimensional measurements using 2D and 3D camera systems for both large structures (e.g. buildings) as well as for small features like cracks.

Furthermore, DFM will develop reliable and accurate gas sensors for drone applications as well as establish techniques for quantification of corrosion from a drone.
