Specifications include, but are not limited to:Demonstrate, develop, and implement uses of data collection from UAV(s) and sensors foroperations, maintenance, design, and asset management. (i.e.: Property Damage ReclamationProgram, Transportation Asset Management System, MI Bridges, design surveys, etc.)2. Demonstrate, develop, and implement enhanced testing of UAV-based thermal imaging forbridge deck structural integrity.3. Demonstrate, develop, and implement systems management and operations uses.4. Demonstrate, develop, and implement high-accuracy simultaneous thermal/photo/video/LightDetection andRanging (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 datadelivery needs while assessing data quality from the UAV sensor(s) shall be coordinated withthe DUAP vendor and selected vendor of this RFP. Coordination efforts to meet the datadelivery needs will be directed by the MDOT Project Managers. Data must be sent within 24hours 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 MDOTmapping and construction monitoring needs. Coordinate with MDOT Survey Support toidentify pilot projects and meet data delivery needs satisfying MDOT requirements for spatialdata 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 canbe achieved) demonstrating, developing, and implementing storage capabilities of largeamounts of data, usage of data, and application development that complements current datausage and application at MDOT according to tasks 1-4 & 6 above.8. Provide a report that describes and recommends optimal methods to store and distributepotentially large imaging, point cloud and 3-D surface datasets created through UAV-based datacollection.9. Compare data collected from UAV sensors to current data collected and systems used at MDOTfor highway assets/operations.10. Provide a benefit/cost analysis and performance measures that define the return on investmentas a result of deploying UAVs and related sensory technologies for transportation purposes.
