Quantity estimation of raw material is an essential part of the inventory management and auditing. Efficient quantity estimation is important for uninterrupted flow of material and stock management. Traditional methods of stockpile (quantity and volumetric) estimations are primitive and not free from error, apart from this, these methods are also risky and time exhausting. Drones comes to aid, expanding their versatility by making the stockpile estimations near accurate and risk free.
UAV based quantity estimations are becoming popular option for mining, construction, agriculture industries. Landfills, dumping yards are also utilizing the benefits of drones.
The area is mapped and is converted into a dense point cloud, making it feasible to map the irregular and uneven form of stock. The data is chisel out in such a way at all external noises arising out of presence of unwanted objects like vehicles and uneven slope are eliminated, thereby leaving only the stock for measurement. Apart from this GarudaUAV can help in mapping the carpet/dead stock at the site.
