Reaching 1 cm (0.4 in) in drone survey accuracy
Tests in the USA and Switzerland prove that the WingtraOne mapping drone repeatedly reaches the best-in-class 1 cm (0.4 in) absolute accuracy.
Learn, how the WingtraOne drone achieved this level of accuracy and what to do to get closer to these measures in your own surveys.
Tests setup and validation in collaboration with
1 cm (0.4 in) drone surveying accuracy is possible in optimal conditions, with little to no vegetation, using well-marked, highly-visible, manually-measured checkpoints and an impeccably established base station. It is important to note that 1 cm (0.4 in) absolute accuracy is the lowest measure that Wingtra has achieved.
Professional expertise and established infrastructure are critical to prove these results. Our tests have been set up and validated in collaboration with ETH Zurich and RDO Integrated Controls. ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) is the world’s 3rd best university for engineering and technology (Top universities, 2019). RDO Integrated Controls is one of the largest Topcon dealers and the largest Wingtra distributor in the USA.
