The aim of the work is to create new scientific knowledge by developing a new innovative technology for remote detection of unknown underground cavities and deep-seated rockslides using a thermal camera mounted on unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).
The technology will consist of the following stages:
Remote localization with a thermal and visible cameras based on UAV;
Data fusion and GIS integration and analysis;
Linking and localization of the registered entrances on the map of the terrain.
