Drone to help check facades of buildings

It promises to make the checking of building facades for cracks and other defects faster, safer and cheaper.

The H3 Zoom.AI Facade Inspector is a drone operated by a two-man team. It was unveiled to the media in a demonstration at one-north last Friday.

The technology was developed by JTC Corporation and H3 Zoom.AI, a digital services platform under parent company H3 Dynamics.

The system, which has cameras that upload thousands of images onto a cloud platform to be scanned, has already been tested at several JTC properties.
