Specifications include, but are not limited to:emonstrate, develop, and implement uses of data collection from UAV(s) and sensors for operations, maintenance, design, and asset management. (i.e.: Property Damage Reclamation Program, Transportation Asset Management System, MI Bridges, design surveys, etc.) 2.Demonstrate, develop, and implement enhanced testing of UAV-based thermal imaging for bridge deck structural integrity. 3.Demonstrate, develop, and implement systems management and operations uses. 4.Demonstrate, develop, and implement high-accuracy simultaneous thermal/photo/video/Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) measurement using a high-fidelity sensor-fused UAV positioning approach. 5.Provide data collection from UAVs to the MDOT Data Use, Analysis, and Process (DUAP) project that meets the quality, low latency delivery and data format requirements. The data delivery needs while assessing data quality from the UAV sensor(s) shall be coordinated with the DUAP vendor and selected vendor of this RFP. Coordination efforts to meet the data delivery needs will be directed by the MDOT Project Managers. Data must be sent within 24 hours of receiving it from the UAV sensor(s) or as determined by the Project Manager. 6.Demonstrate the capabilities to complete aerial remote sensing data collection to meet MDOT mapping and construction monitoring needs. Coordinate with MDOT Survey Support to identify pilot projects and meet data delivery needs satisfying MDOT requirements for spatial data collection as it pertains to data density, absolute and relative 3D positional accuracy. 7.Collect data from the UAV platform using sensing technology in near-time (as real-time as can be achieved) demonstrating, developing, and implementing storage capabilities of large amounts of data, usage of data, and application development that complements current data usage and application at MDOT according to tasks 1-4 & 6 above. 8.Provide a report that describes and recommends optimal methods to store and distribute potentially large imaging, point cloud and 3-D surface datasets created through UAV-based data collection. 9.Compare data collected from UAV sensors to current data collected and systems used at MDOT for highway assets/operations. 10. Provide a benefit/cost analysis and performance measures that define the return on investment as a result of deploying UAVs and related sensory technologies for transportation purposes.
