Oblique Sony a6100

Optimized to map vertical structures, the Oblique Sony ɑ6100 allows you to generate high-resolution 3D meshes with centimeter-level absolute accuracy.

Optimised for 3D

WingtraOne’s oblique solution with the fast-triggering ɑ6100 camera and wide-angle 12 mm optics in a tilted mount makes for the optimal solution to map 3D structures, from single buildings to full-scale cities.

* For successful 3D mapping, high side and front overlaps are recommended. The specified numbers refer to the suggested default values of 80% side and 85% front overlap 
** Horizontal absolute accuracy (RMS). Achievable with a WingtraOne GEN II and its built-in GNSS PPK module. This level of accuracy is achievable under optimal conditions, on hard surfaces, using a well-established base station or data from a CORS network. A minimum of three ground points should be used as checkpoints to verify and prove the accuracy of the project.

A low-oblique configuration

The WingtraOne oblique solution combines the high-end Sony ɑ6100 camera with a wide-angle 12mm lens in a tilted mount and low-oblique configuration.

The WingtraOne oblique solution combines the high-end Sony a6100 camera with a wide-angle 12mm lens in a tilted mount and low-oblique configuration.

If you are mapping bare earth or open fields, a camera looking straight down is the best solution, because the different points in your image are the same distance from your camera. 

If you want to map 3D structures like buildings or highwalls, you want to capture enough detail on the vertical walls. A low-oblique configuration provides a wide field of view to the front and sides, making it the best solution to capture a maximum of detail.

WingtraOne oblique camera illustration
"Low-oblique" means that the camera is tilted to the front at an optimized angle to capture rich details of the vertical facades without unnecessary horizontal information towards the horizon.

Combined with WingtraOne’s unprecedented PPK geotagging accuracy, VTOL capability, and optimized oblique flight planning in WingtraPilot, you can create life-like digital twins with high absolute accuracy in a short amount of time. 

The oblique payload is configured in a way that you only have to fly your area once (no cross-grid planning needed). This boosts your field efficiency and allows you to map up to 180 ha (445 ac) * in a single flight.

* Flying at 120 m (400 ft) above ground with a side overlap of 80%.
