  • Publication number: 20190302770
    Abstract: [Object] To provide a control device that can make more efficient an inspection performed by a flying body capable of performing imaging. [Solution] Provided is a control device including an acquisition unit configured to acquire information related to an overview of a structure, and a flight information generating unit configured to generate flight information of a flying body being caused to fly over a periphery of the structure to image the structure on the basis of the information acquired by the acquisition unit. The control device generates information used to cause the flying body to image the structure, and thereby makes it possible to make more efficient the inspection performed by the flying body capable of performing imaging.

  • Publication number: 20170169582
    Abstract: [Object] To provide a novel and improved information processing device that can make more efficient an inspection performed by a flying body capable of performing imaging. [Solution] Provided is an information processing device including an imaging position information acquisition unit configured to acquire imaging position information at a time when a structure is imaged which is acquired by an imaging device configured to fly over a periphery of the structure to image the structure on the basis of certain flight information, and a damage data generating unit configured to use a captured image of the structure imaged by the imaging device and the imaging position information and to generate data related to damage of the structure including position information of damage of the structure included in the captured image.
