Hey guys its been a long time i have posted to this blog!! Well today i have some time to spare at the KFC in Goa ... Its been 8 days we have spent over here walking 10 kms daily on the railways tracks 😛 obvsly not expected we thought it would be easy to execute here and party at the night but you can think about us walking 10kms daily on railways tracks and then partying at night we obvsly had no power left by the end of the day.
Let me tell you about the project now i guess i was jumping directly to the story ....
We are here in Goa to work for Railways doing inspection and mapping for a new railway line to be setup and hence we had to be parallel to the line which is present as of today... now earlier we knew there were some parts of jungle to be precise 10kms of jungle area where it wasnt accessible at breaks.
You get in from one side and out at another so you have to walk about 10kms straight 😛
Here we planned for a rough accuracy of 5cm/pixel and hence we had a freedom of flying about 60-70 and may be 100 meters i wont be precise in writing those technical specs as it will bore you if your are not aware of those terms.
Well coming to the point we came here by bus and it was a sleeper one , i would like to mention i had a neck pain and muscle spasm as per doctor everything was fine it was just a muscle spasm well i couldnt sleep well after about 10-12 hours of journey we reach goa on 8th of January.
now we wasted our day relocating ourselves from guest house to the hotel and as you know first time to work for a project in goa so budget food accomodation lot of stuff to come into picture 🙂 that too this is south goa.
now as day1 is wasted day2 we had to cover a lot of area but we had to shoot some videos too for animation purpose so we wasted day2 with this short videos of underpass and overpass we shall cover this terms later.
We covered about 2kms of railway track walking we mapped using 3rd party softwares and took video using DJI Go app.
Now i was using dji phantom 4 pro for the project and it would give me a good video and image quality due to its 2inch sensor.
We shot at 4k 25fps and images were at normal.
Not to forget my friend akshay was with me without him i dont think this was possible for me to do alone.
Akshay has become a professional and can control this drone and handle such projects at ease now is what i can say today.
We have just some simple steps to follow which makes our execution faster and easier to work out well not bragging about our learning and teaching facility but yes it does work.
Last 2 days akshay was handling the operations himself 🙂 i was in pain though my back is worse now and surely gonna be at bedrest.
I shall post more about execution as time passes as now i guess i need to move for my bus today 15th jan is my bday and we are travelling back to mumbai for rest and we shall resume the project in some days till time checking the data and processing it shall be carried.
our Techie is working from home on the stitching software and computing power which we need to process this large data also we need a huge storage for saving our data from projects.
This is for today ,stay tuned and i shall update this post with some images 🙂 i just forgot about the images but if you are following my social media which you will find in the footer of this page you will find out more 🙂
