Computer Vision on 3D models

Opportunity
Building inspections are labour intensive, costly and dangerous. Drones have been introduced to the process to address this but a person is still required to analyse the images.

Solution
Silverpond used its tool HighLighter to train software to recognise building defects on 3D models of the building from drone collected data.

Results
-Reduced the inspection costs from $0.35/metre to $0.07/metre.
-Decreased inspection time by 70%.
-Removed requirements for rooftop inspection by a person for over 600 buildings.
-Increased the total coverage of a traditional inspection from 15% to 100% of the
 building’s surface area.
