Society is constantly changing with rapid development of technology. One aspect that is influenced heavily by this continuous change is Artificial Intelligence (AI). The capabilities of AI to solve problems have increased to an extent that some problems even humans cannot solve anymore. We experience this daily in voice recognition, computer vision and video games. Another field that is influenced by AI is archaeology. Archaeology, a discipline that studies ancient artifacts
The reliability of a pipeline is dependent on the design. A design is defective when materials are selected improperly or the system is constructed falsely. In other situations, the design can become flawed from unexpected conditions such as natural disasters. Therefore, a pipeline must be regularly and carefully checked. Pipelines are often located underground or are extended for long distances in remote areas where no paved roads reach. Traditionally, operators will inspect
The market for drones in the GCC is expected to reach $1.5bn by 2022, with the technology now expanding beyond the military sector, a new report has found. The report by Strategy& – formerly Booz & Company, stated that the usage of drones in the commercial space has increased significantly in recent years. There are several types of drone-powered solutions depending on the purpose: surveying and mapping, investment supervision, asset inventory and management, maintenance moni
The Sultanate's lucrative drone market’s value will rise to $109 million (OMR41.92 million) in the next five years on the back of increased oil and gas and utilities activities, according to a report.
The research forecast that the Gulf Cooperation Council-wide drone market should reach $1.5 billion with the rise in optimisation and cost reduction, and hence an increased dependency on automation and drones.
“The $1.5 billion was the total market in 2022 for commercial dro
Introduction Drones become more popular day after day. At the beginning, people fly drones for fun only. Now, companies started to use these drones for 3D mapping and modeling. However, there are many other applications that companies can use to make their work more efficient and precise. Old Waste Dump location Our Team decided to get some worthy shots of an old waste dump in Oman to see the workability of our drone and data analysis. The flight attitude was chosen to be abo
Figure 1. 3D portrayal of an ancient Guard Tower in the Sultanate of Oman. Heritage, a term that is regarded to be invaluable in the Omani community; is essentially an inheritance. This inheritance can be in the form of land, art and even honor. In the case of this relatively small guard tower in the middle of nowhere it is in the form of brilliance. Brilliance in the architecture, purpose and careful construction such that this tower stands even after it’s builders are long
Executive Summary We worked on a small project to help analyze and identify the effects of high temperatures and drought on the health of plants. The mapped area is located in Al Ma’amour, a small village that separates Adam and Bahla. On both sides of the Wadi, plants and grass can be seen fighting their way through the high temperatures of the summer. The goal of this project is to monitor the health of plants throughout the year. Project Numbers The size of the mapped area
