On August 12th, 2021 took place a DRONUMENT WORKSHOP, on inspection by fleets of autonomous drones. The Workshop was primarily dedicated to DRONUMENT – a system for the documentation and inspection of historical monuments using a team of unmanned aerial vehicles http://mrs.felk.cvut.cz/projects/dronument. In cooperation with the Czech National Heritage Institute (NPÚ), we have designed a fully autonomous system for gathering information about the current state of paintings, frescos, and other historical objects in difficult to access areas in interiors of historical monuments. The UAVs are intended to be used in groups in a cooperative way to solve tasks such as smart lighting, where one UAV acts as the main camera-equipped robot for filming while the other UAVs provide lighting to the scene from optimal positions.
