Measurement of time intervals with low accuracy on intervals from a few seconds to several hours or days is relevant for some broad applications in various fields of activity. Such measurements are widely used in the technological processes of various enterprises during the preparation and quality control of the preparation of medicines, during the maintenance of technical equipment and mechanisms, chemical technological processes, etc.
Aim. To develop an UAV for topographical aerial surveying goals, to explore its features, and comply with assigned tasks. Methodology. Scientists of the Institute of Geodesy in National University Lviv Polytechnic and manufacturers of Abris Design Group consistently designed and studied several models of UAVs, in order to create a perfect model, to make it possible to organize aerial surveying for topographical purposes. As a result of previous experimental work, technical requirements for the creation of UAVs were defined.
Purpose. The purpose of this paper is to analysis and research capabilities of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) Trimble UX5 to create orthophotomap and digital elevation models (DEM), as well as identifying and addressing possible shortcomings in the aerial survey and processing of aerial photographs. Methods. Before starting aerosurveying conducted reconnaissance of the area.
