Drones may find use in simplified motion-capture animation

A new project from Intel used drones to map every inch of a bridge–without having to shut down traffic or send workers rappelling off the sides. If you commute over bridges and overpasses each day, there’s a fairly good chance that some of them might need repair (more than 54,000 U.S. bridges are rated “structurally deficient”). As the country’s infrastructure ages, bridge inspections get even more important, but the work is expensive, time-consuming, and dangerous, requiring engineers to rappel down the side of a bridge hundreds of feet above a river. It’s a task that might be better suited for drones.Read Full Story

Drones may find use in simplified motion-capture animation

In a typical motion-capture animation setup, an actor goes through their actions in a studio equipped with multiple cameras. A computer tracks markers on the actor's body, building a ...
