Academician Pioneering Drone Remote Sensing Project Bringing "Eyes In The Sky" To Cities

In sci-fi blockbusters, drones carrying a variety of mounting devices roam the streets, dealing with all kinds of sudden problems and showing their powers. Now, a team led by Zhou Chenghu, an academician at the Chinese Academy of Sciences and chief scientist at the Guangzhou Institute of Geography under the Guangdong Academy of Sciences, is turning such a scenario into reality.

In recent years, drones have been increasingly used in various industries for information collection, but the whole flight process still needs manual operation, and the collected data also needs manual processing before it can be really used. "When will drones be truly 'unmanned'?" Zhou Chenghu has been engaged in the research of geographic information system and remote sensing application for a long time. His curiosity and demand drove him to lead the establishment of Guangzhou Zhongke Cloud Atlas Intelligent Technology Co., Ltd., to transform the long-term accumulated scientific research results and make the ideal "drone remote sensing system".

After several twists and turns, Zhou Chenghu and his team repeatedly upgraded and optimized the drone remote sensing system, adding various mounting and flight control procedures to it to meet the needs of different industries. "Sometimes when I write a program, it will get stuck, and I can't find any errors, and I want to smash the keyboard." "Then I just stared at the screen and suddenly realized it was a problem," he said. "It was solved in no time."

Some progress has been made in the research and development, and the unmanned aerial vehicle remote sensing system has completed the unmanned automatic inspection operation at a 500 KV ultra-high voltage substation in Hunan Province. When the team celebrated the victory, Zhou Chenghu began to think about the next development direction of the drone: network operation.

Zhongke Cloud Tu, which is engaged in the research and development of low-altitude drone remote sensing and geospatial intelligent products and technical services, has been 0ed as the "2020 Guangzhou 'Unicorn' Innovative Enterprise" list. Company general manager Pan Yifeng said that Zhongke Cloud Atlas is carrying out unmanned aerial vehicle network pilot in Foshan City, is expected to be in June 2021 Danzao Town, Foshan City into full operation.

After forming the network, the drone group will realize the effect of "one plus one is greater than two", and is expected to become the "eye in the sky" to speed up the emergency response and improve the response efficiency. According to Zhou Chenghu, in case of an emergency, the drones in cities can respond within half an hour or in distant areas within an hour, arriving at the scene as soon as possible and collecting information for quick disposal.

"Scientists are driven by two impulses: one is the curiosity to explore nature, and the other is the practical needs of social development and production." "Researchers should not only solve immediate practical problems, but also think about how the whole field and industry will change in the next five to 10 years, and move forward a little more," Zhou said.

In his view, scientists need to collaborate with industry in order to make the results of research accessible to more people. "Scientists are responsible for scientific research and technology development, but technical workers.

At the same time, with the rapid development of science and technology, the mode and speed of transformation and application of scientific and technological achievements have also changed substantially. Zhou is leading the team to explore and put forward a "STEP" model of the organic integration of "science, technology, engineering and products", hoping to build a set of scientific and technological achievements transformation system in line with scientific laws and suitable for China's national conditions.

In order to better help scientists realize the transformation of scientific and technological achievements, Guangdong Academy of Sciences has set up technology incubation carriers in many places in the province, equipped with a professional technical manager team and a market-oriented operation mechanism. Zhou Chenghu's project is based at Foshan Industrial Technology Research Institute. Relying on Foshan's complete industrial chain and huge market demand, Guangdong Academy of Sciences has opened the "last mile" for academician entrepreneurship projects scientific research to product development.

Now, Zhou is still working on the development and innovation of first-line products, getting up at 4:30 am to work every day and not going to bed until 11:00 PM. "I'm not a genius, no pains, no rewards." "There is no peak in science," he says. "We are always climbing the hill. For me, doing research and starting a business is all about putting your energy into it and doing it to the fullest."
